Roman Road is pleased to present Shutdown!, the first solo exhibition by Argentinian artist Marie Orensanz with the gallery.
Featuring a collection of sculptural and framed works from the 1970s to the present day, including a variation of her 1974 piece Pensar es un hecho revolucionario, recently shown in Radical Women: Latin American Art, 1960-1985 at the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; Shutdown! considers how an early discovery of the political power of words made a lasting impression on Orensanz’ conceptual practice.
