Group Exhibition ‘Contemporary Art. Andy Warhol to Anselm Kiefer’ at Albertina, Austria
The exhibition focuses on art from the second half of the 20th century, featuring both the stars and the broad diversity of art after 1945. Around 80 masterpieces serve to illustrate the multifaceted nature of postmodernism, ranging from Hyperrealism to abstraction and from color aesthetics to political themes, while also providing a clear impression of the complex parallel trends of the past few decades. Works by Anselm Kiefer, Gerhard Richter, Arnulf Rainer, Georg Baselitz, Alex Katz and Maria Lassnig and others take centre-stage. A generous donation by Gottfried Helnwein has made possible to show seven high-quality paintings by the famous Austrian artist at the exhibition.
