New Exhibition

Generations. Female Artists in Dialog. Part 1
February 22 until July 13, 2018
Sammlung Goetz

From the beginning, works by women have had a significant importance in the Sammlung Goetz. Thus, central individual positions and groupings were established early on and their work consistently collected over the years. On the occasion of its 25th anniversary, Sammlung Goetz will present an exhibition in three parts that includes paintings, sculptures, drawings, photographs, films and extensive installations by artists from the 1960s to the present in an intergenerational dialogue.

The appropriation of ordinary materials and creative practices from the fields of applied arts, advertising and design are the focus of the first part of the exhibition. On display are minimalist knitted images by Rosemarie Trockel, woven cotton collages by Pae White, installations with painted rubber gloves by Yayoi Kusama, large-format paintings generated by Katharina Grosse’s spray-paint gun, and slogans and aphorisms on LED light panels by Jenny Holzer. In addition to these internationally renowned positions, the show also includes new discoveries and rediscoveries, such as the young painter Lucy Dodd, who works with unusual materials, including flower essences, mushrooms and lichen, and the American nun, Sister Mary Corita Kent, who was also one of the most innovative Pop Art artists of the 1960s.
