Now! Young Painting in Germany
Deichtorhallen Hamburg, Germany
Feb. 14 to May 17, 2020
With the exhibition project “Now! Young Painting in Germany,” the Kunstmuseum Bonn, the Museum Wiesbaden, the Kunstsammlungen Chemnitz - Museum Gunzenhauser and the Deichtorhallen Hamburg are engaged in an endeavor to determine the current status of the painting world. The goal is to present a valid cross section of paintings produced in Germany by young artists, while giving consideration to all the forms in which it appears.
Even before the dawn of Romanticism in the 1800s, painting has been seen as the foremost art form in Germany.
A nation of celebrated painters at the close of the 19th century, Germany continues to be a driving force in the art of painting around the world to this day, boasting such internationally renowned painters as Gerhard Richter, Anselm Kiefer, Georg Baselitz and Albert Oehlen.
This museum collaboration sharing an ardent commitment to the art of painting will present the next generation of important painters in Germany. The exhibition will include about 500 works by 53 artists belonging to the “40-something” generation. The Kunstmuseum Bonn, the Museum Wiesbaden, and the Kunstsammlungen Chemnitz ? Museum Gunzenhauser will simultaneously present three or more works by each artist until Jan. 19, 2020. A comprehensive selection of these works will be on display at the Deichtorhallen Hamburg from Feb. 14 to May 17.
Selected artists are those who are currently advancing painting in the classical sense, as panel painting or a picture on a wall. A list of nearly 200 artists, reflecting the diversity and quality of artistic production in Germany, was created in a selection process that lasted over a year and took curators into the studios of painters throughout Germany
The search took place at classical academy locations, including Leipzig, Dresden, Munich, Stuttgart, Karlsruhe, Frankfurt, Dusseldorf, Hamburg and Berlin, where outstanding young painters have made their mark.
The first of its kind since German reunification, this exhibition endeavors to provide as comprehensive an overview as possible of contemporary painting in Germany - without content restrictions, but with a focus on classical pictorial traditions and their interrogation. It examines the relevance of this genre in hope of confirming it.
The show will be accompanied by a substantial catalogue available from Hirmer Verlag. For more information, go to www.deichtorhallen.de
