Charlotte Posenenske: Work in Progress

Dia Beacon, New York

NOW CLOSED

Born in Germany in 1930, Posenenske began her artistic career in the 1950s, before abandoning it for sociology in 1968. This first US museum survey revisits her politically engaged work, from minimalist drawings to ‘sculptural elements’ designed to be assembled by the public. Find out more from the Dia Art Foundation’s website.
