Cape Town-born and Berlin-based multidisciplinary artist Robin Rhode works across visual media to interrogate notions of the city and urban landscapes, the individual, and the cultural collective. Rhode was recently announced as a commissioned artist for Performa 15, the biennial of performance art, taking place in New York November 1–22, 2015. For his commission, which is still in the works, Rhode will reinterpret Schoenberg’s 1909 opera Erwartung and build the set using doors reclaimed from his native South Africa. He currently has two exhibitions on view; Borne Frieze, his third solo exhibition at Lehmann Maupin, features new work meant to broaden the possibilities of drawing as a medium. Drawing Waves at the Drawing Center, meanwhile, includes stop-motion photographs and a wall drawing done in collaboration with school children. Lee Ann Norman and the artist spoke recently about the new shows and what it means to make art in an increasingly globalized world.
