Barbara Kruger, the artist that initially inspired the logo for Supreme, touches down in Berlin at Sprüth Magers for her latest exhibition, “Forever.” Riffing on Virginia Woolf’s “A Room of One’s Own,” Kruger filled the entire gallery wall with, “You know that women have served all these centuries as looking glasses possessing the magic and delicious power of reflecting the figure of man at twice its natural size.”
According to The New York Times, Kruger finds the essay to be “very relevant to the conditions of certain women.” Adding, “I mean, when I read Woolf, I’m very aware of both the expansiveness of her writing, but also the specificity of being a white woman of a particular class in England when she wrote this.” Thus, she used that quote, “because I think that it’s both humorous and tragic, which is what the world can be read and felt as many days.”
“Forever” runs from September 16, 2017 to December 22 2017.
