POV
The theme here is built around Derrida’s notion that Marxism continues to “haunt” Western capitalist societies. No surprise, featured artists - including such marquee names as Urs Fischer, Ewa Juszkiewicz and Richard Prince - have been known surfing the edge of such concepts.

ABOUT
Gagosian is pleased to present Haunted Realism, a group exhibition featuring the work of more than thirty artists including Meleko Mokgosi, Ed Ruscha, Jenny Saville, and Tatiana Trouvé. Haunted Realism takes its title in part from hauntology, a term coined by Jacques Derrida in his 1993 book Specters of Marx to characterize what he considered the tendency of Marxism to “haunt Western society from beyond the grave.” Derrida’s concept has been explored in a broader cultural context, denoting a state of historical overlap and disjunction—“the past inside the present”—that resonates through fields ranging from anthropology and philosophy to film, electronic music, and visual art. The idea is notably explored by cultural critic Mark Fisher in his books Capitalist Realism (2009) and The Weird and the Eerie (2016). - Gagosian
