Sammlung Goetz

New York Painters

Painting is one of Ingvild Goetz's major focuses. The second exhibition in her gallery building is dedicated to the second generation of the New York School.

With Donald Baechler, Ross Bleckner, Peter Halley, Jonathan Lasker, Richard Prince, David Reed, Peter Schuyff, Philip Taaffe and Christopher Wool.

During the 1980s, American painting moved away from the conflicting directions of Minimalism and abstract Expressionism to find its orientation in Conceptualism. The exhibition New York Painters at Sammlung Goetz shows nine artistic positions that gave a broad overview of the current confrontation in the American art metropolis with this particular medium. Circa 30 large-format paintings and over 50 paper works from the 1980s as well as some current images directly from the atelier ere being shown.
"In the 1980s in America, when we repeatedly found that art had become simply a 'ware', abstraction seemed for many people to be an indirect and thus impossible means of speaking about this more urgent circumstance of change", explained Rainer Crone in his introduction to the exhibition. "We are grateful to Ingvild Goetz that we can take such a succinct yet comprehensive look at the abstract painting of this decade; at a collection of paintings that is just as noteworthy for what it leaves out as what it includes".

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.
