ROSEMARIE CASTORO
Land of Lashes
Land of Lashes, the first solo exhibition on New York artist  Rosemarie Castoro (1939–2015) in Austria, expands the fields  of sculpture, painting, and performance. With her conceptual way of working, Castoro interpreted sculpture in her space of action and wrote her own narrative in the context of minimal art, post-minimal art, conceptual art, and feminism. She was active in the circle of Carl Andre (married 1964–1970), Donald Judd, and Agnes Martin, found inspiration in modern dance, and worked with the choreographer Yvonne Rainer. Castoro experimented with surreal connotations and fluid gender roles, and responded artistically to the time of social and political upheaval and discourse in the 1960s and 1970s.
