A Coin in Nine Hands: Part Two

Joseph Beuys
7 Nov—2 Dec 2017

Marguerite Yourcenar’s novel, A Coin in Nine Hands (1934), follows the journey of a ten-lira coin as it travels between nine different people on a single day in Rome in 1933.

Inspired by this idea, Large Glass presents the work of a range of artists across nine parts or exhibitions over the coming nine months, revealing connections, exchanges, and highlighting some of the hidden bonds that bring artists together.

Part two shines a light on the work of the German artist Joseph Beuys by focusing on a collection of his exhibition and performance posters, including: I like America and America Likes Me (Rene Block Gallery, New York, 1974), The secret block for a secret person in Ireland (Ireland, 1974), Beuys’s retrospective at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation (New York, 1979) and Zeige deine Wunde [trans. Show your Wound] (Lehmbachhaus, Munich, 1974-5), among others.
