Hannelore Baron
The Art of Assemblage

at Michael Rosenfeld Gallery in New York, New York, USA
27 January-23 March 2024

“Hannelore Baron” is a solo exhibition of collages, box assemblages, and monoprints dating from 1970 to 1986. Focusing on the artist’s singular visual language of signs, symbols, and ciphers, “Hannelore Baron” provides an in-depth look at her personal iconography and material sensibility. A dedicated display featuring a selection of the unique cutouts the artist used to make the monoprints integral to her compositional approach provides a special insight into her technical processes. Presenting thirty-eight collages, fifteen box assemblages, and three monoprints, “Hannelore Baron” is accompanied by a fully illustrated exhibition catalogue publishing new scholarship by art historian, professor, and curator Anne Koval.

Michael Rosenfeld Gallery is the exclusive representative of the estate of Hannelore Baron.

“The Art of Assemblage” is a group exhibition organized in homage to The Museum of Modern Art’s groundbreaking 1961 exhibition of the same name curated by William C. Seitz. Presenting a selection of works that mirror and expound upon Seitz’s medium-defining exhibition, the gallery’s iteration of “The Art of Assemblage” demonstrates the incisiveness and prescience of his thesis. Featured artists include Mary Bauermeister, Lee Bontecou, Bruce Conner, Joseph Cornell, Arthur Dove, Melvin Edwards, Claire Falkenstein, Ilse Getz, Nancy Grossman, Edward Kienholz, Yayoi Kusama, Conrad Marca-Relli, Louise Nevelson, Alfonso Ossorio, Betye Saar, Lucas Samaras, Richard Stankiewicz, Lenore Tawney, Laurence Vail, and Vaclav Vytlacil. This exhibition is on view concurrently with the solo exhibition “Hannelore Baron”.
