Bernar Venet Indeterminate Hypothesis
Kasmin is pleased to announce Indeterminate Hypothesis, an exhibition of work by French conceptual artist Bernar Venet (b. 1941). Consisting of five monumental Indeterminate Line sculptures, this exhibition marks Venet's third solo show with Kasmin and will be on view in the gallery's flagship space at 509 West 27th Street, opening September 12, 2019. This is the first time the series has been shown in a gallery in the United States since 2002. Indeterminate Hypothesis will be accompanied by Venet's first performance of The Straight Line and the Pictorial Memory of the Gesture in the United States, held during the exhibition's opening night in the gallery's 297 Tenth Avenue location. The works produced during the performance will remain on view through September 21, 2019. Indeterminate Hypothesis continues the artist's lifelong, process-based investigation into the mathematical and philosophical implications of the line. A contemporary of Donald Judd, Dan Flavin, and Sol LeWitt, Venet has concentrated his artistic practice on the complex relationship between an object's conceptual framework and its materiality for over six decades.
