Barbara Kasten,
“I want the
eyes to open” 

@ Hannah
Hoffman 
Gallery 
— 

A restlessly
inventive & 
experimental
artist.
” 

Kasten’s practice: 
Utilizes a hybridized 
approach that 
collapses concerns 
central to a cross–
section of media
including painting,
sculpture, and
photography. 

Key influences: 
· Constructivism 
· Bauhaus pedagogy 
· The California Light 
and Space Movement 
· Postmodern 
architecture & design. 

The exhibition: 
Referencing a quote 
by German-born 
abstract artist & 
educator Josef
Albers
– Kasten's
first solo show at 
Hannah Hoffman 
Gallery
presents 
(3) distinct bodies
of work by the
American artist; 
Constructs,
Elementals, and
Double Negatives,
shown alongside
a spatially
disorienting video
installation titled
Double Corner
