:::::: NEW EXHIBITIONS :::

Bill Bollinger. The Retrospective :: In the outgoing 1960s, Bill Bollinger (1939–1988) was among the most prominent sculptors of his time. Slipping into obscurity from around the mid 1970s on, he no longer figured as a presence in the international art world. The exhibition, initially on display at the Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein, and to be shown presently at the ZKM | Museum of Contemporary Art, is the first retrospective aiming to rediscover the complexity, radicality and intensity characteristic of the artist's oeuvre ⁄⁄ more

Lee Bontecou. Insights :: North American artist, Lee Bontecou, is to be honored for the first time since over thirty years with an exhibition in Europe. On the occasion of her 80th birthday, the ZKM provides a glimpse into the artist's innovative work during the 1960s. It was her extraordinary three-dimensional wall art that made Bontecou – as one of the few women contemporaries in the art scene – a central female artist. The exhibition, Lee Bontecou. Insights, displays a selection of her internationally recognized works of the 1960s ⁄⁄ more

The exhibition shows paintings and objects, which, while appearing to fundamentally differ in their aesthetic effect, nevertheless reveals – in a passionate sense –astonishing parallels in their basic artistic conception ⁄⁄ more
