Robert Longo Finds Hope in the Storm

Robert Longo: Storm of Hope
Jordan Riefe

Robert Longo: Storm of Hope installed at Jeffery Deitch, Los Angeles, November 21, 2020–January 30, 2021.

Robert Longo’s work navigates the world we live in and how we see it. Countering the “image storm” that surrounds us, he creates iconic and provocative works based on the daily flow of images across our screens. He envisions his large-scale drawings as monuments, securing a sense of permanence that transcends the flood of transitory imagery. Longo cites his version of the Cassandra curse: “artists can see the future, but will people listen?”
