Amor Fati, at Pioneer Works, NYC

Exhibitions   PIONEER WORKS

Pioneer Works is pleased to present Amor Fati, a group exhibition curated by Anna Erickson and Wills Baker.

In Amor Fati, we bring together works from artists whose identity and practice shape an immersive look into Dionysian constructions. The works within this exhibition expose the many iterations of irrational human folly, destructive debauchery, primal intuition, ecstatic revelry, reckless exploit and sacrifice. Dionysus, with its celebration of everything that escapes human reason, is the mythological vessel distorting the rational world. In dialog with one another, the works display a modern paganism, revealing a cult of worship as an answer to the inevitable fall of the artist.

Artists included in Amor FatiDavid Armstrong, Maxime Ballesteros, Benjamin Degen, Zhivago Duncan, Richard Dupont, Martin Eder, Eloise Fornieles, Douglas Gordon, Loris Gréaud, Nir Hod, Michael Joo, Kika Karadi, John Miserendino, Yoko Ono, Angel Otero, Nicolas Provost, Matthew Stone, Stephen Tashijan, Mickalene Thomas, Andy Warhol, Graham Wilson, Nick van Woert

OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday September 14th, 4pm-7pm


Anna Erickson is an art dealer based in New York. She began her career at Gagosian Gallery in New York, before moving abroad to join Haunch of Venison in Berlin, Germany. After living and working in Berlin for several years, during which time she curated the large-scale group exhibitions, “In Fifteen Minutes Everybody Will Be Famous” and “The Garden of Earthly Delights,” Anna returned to New York and is currently an Associate Director at Hauser & Wirth.

Wills Baker is an art advisor, curator and designer working out of Brooklyn, NY. Following positions at London’s Paradise Row gallery and Hauser & Wirth NY this is his first North American show.
