American Art from the Sammlung Goetz

The exhibition at Kunstverein Weiden presents a selection of works of American art from the 1980s and 1990s, which were on display at the Rudolfinum in Prague last year in the presentation American Art from the Goetz Collection.

With Carol Dunham, Mary Heilmann, Jenny Holzer, Mike Kelley, Tony Oursler, Richard Prince and Jessica Stockholder.

Twenty-four works by eight American artists are on view. The predominantly multi-part works present the entire spectrum of artistic creativity, ranging from drawings, graphic works, paintings and photographs to spatial installations and works of media art, all of which explore socio-political issues in a critical, exciting and intellectual way.

Felix Gonzalez-Torres, "Untitled", 1992

An exhibition project by the Sammlung Goetz in public space

The black-and-white photograph "Untitled" (1992) by Felix Gonzalez-Torres, in which a figure’s ghostly shadow is captured on a billowing curtain, is part of the artist’s billboard series. The concept behind the work is that the owner produces the image as a public poster. Regardless of how often it is printed, it is always unique. In the context of Munich’s Various Others project, the Sammlung Goetz is presenting "Untitled" (1992) on five billboards in around the city and in front of its own exhibition building in Munich.
