Roni Horn, Pink Tons, 2008–11.

Roni Horn

Potomac, Maryland


“Roni Horn,” a survey of work from the last four decades curated by the artist from the museum’s permanent collection, featured photographs, sculptures, and drawings divided into eight rooms: the earliest work, Ant Farm, dates from 1974, but the majority of the works were produced from 2000 to 2015. Horn’s work was ideal for Glenstone, a private museum outside Washington, DC; architecture, site, and art melded seamlessly together into a total experience that allowed for contemplation of complex ideas. Though Horn is often discussed in relationship to post-Minimalism and post-conceptualism, this exhibition could be enjoyed by a wide audience– it was anything but purely cerebral. The works themselves (with the exception of the 36 headshots of a clown in Cabinet of [2001–02]) were inviting, particularly a series of large-scale “drawings,” as Horn calls them…see the entire review in the print version of April’s Sculpture magazine.
