Petzel Gallery is pleased to present Andachtsbild, a group show opening May 3rd and on view through June 22nd at the gallery's Upper East Side location. The exhibition, curated by Karel Schampers, formerly Director of the Frans Hals Museum in the Netherlands, explores various visual modes and expressions of humanity, rooting itself in the idea of devotion. Andachtsbild presents artworks that delve into our emotional values and testify to the true experiences of human beings. It is Schampers' belief that artists are innately able to give special meaning to this subject matter as they have the ability to broach it with a broader sense of intimacy than most. Presenting the viewer with works of art that highlight eclectic interpretations of devotion and human expression will lead to a broader awareness of and engagement with what is being represented. "Andachtsbild is about love, dedication, concern, involvement, vulnerability, friendship, sincerity, consolation, and humility," Schampers says. "The show is meant to inspire and the works selected invite the viewer to further contemplate these sentiments."
