Kate V Robertson

FEINKOST is pleased to present the first solo exhibition in Germany of Scottish artist Kate V Robertson. Entitled “Pieces” the presentation of this new body of work introduces Robertson’s practice of sculpture and site-specific installation that incorporates materials hinged on precarity and slippery states of being.

Reciprocated Love

by Ana Finel Honigman
          Andy Warhol's dictum that "Making money is art and working is art and good business is the best art," is often cited as a paradigm-changing contribution to contemporary art. In today's economy, however, artists need to re-evaluate those values and find other ways to gauge the cost-benefits of creative endeavors. One such approach is offered by the moving and thought-provoking group show "More Love Hours That Can Ever Be Repaid," curated by Aaron Moulton at the Feinkost gallery.  It takes its title from Mike Kelley's seminal 1987 work by the same name. Kelley's show consisted o... [more]
