Au rendez-vous des amis. Modernism in dialogue with contemporary art from the Sammlung Goetz
29. September 2020 bis 28. März 2021

Sammlung Moderne Kunst | Pinakothek der Moderne und Sammlung Goetz

With its multitude of artistic revolutions and styles Classical Modernism has been an inexhaustible source of inspiration for successive generations of artists. In the early 20th century, the avant garde paved the way for a more liberal treatment of colour, line and perspective, and outlined groundbreaking ideas for a new social community. 
These manifold impulses are shown in an exemplary new presentation of the 13 rooms of Classical Modernism, in which some 140 works from the Modern Art Collection and the Ann and Jürgen Wilde Foundation enter into dialogue with 80 contemporary artworks from the Sammlung Goetz. In this way, the focus on painting within the Classical Modernists in the Bayerische Staatsgemäldesammlungen has been widened to include photography, sculpture and works on paper, as well as textile art, some objects being exhibited for the first time.
