Scar, Left Cheek: Corbett vs. Dempsey at Art Cologne 2013

Corbett vs. Dempsey’s booth exhibition at Art Cologne 2013 features a set of silkscreened and altered books by Arturo Herrera, new large paintings by Joyce Pensato and Molly Zuckerman-Hartung, drawings by Karl Wirsum, and a selection of vintage photographs and photo-prints by Ralph Arnold, Weegee (Arthur Fellig, Jr.), Walter Hamady, Clarence John Laughlin, and Ralph Eugene Meatyard. The booth exhibition is titled Scar, Left Cheek, after a descriptive line in Duke Ellington’s passport, which is on display and has inspired the 28-page publication that accompanies the exhibition. In this conversation with Bettina Krogemann, Jim Dempsey talks about the concept of the show and the works on display.

Update: Corbett vs. Dempsey received the 2013 Maurice Lacroix Art Award for New Contemporaries, the award for the best presentation of a young gallery at Art Cologne.
