from 28 February until 9 June a substantial presentation of works by the artist and Academy professor, Günther Förg, who died recently, is on view on the lower floor. A large number of works – paintings, sculptures and works on paper – will provide an excellent insight into Förg’s œuvre. The works are drawn from collections of the Museum Brandhorst and the Pinakothek der Moderne, in particular the Stoffel Collection. Series of paintings and photographs will also be displayed alongside an impressive selection of Förg’s ‘masks’, accompanied by two thematically related series of watercolours. In May, a number of evening events will be organised by the Museum Brandhorst in cooperation with the Akademie der Bildenden Künste at which colleagues, art historians and acquaintances will be talking about Förg’s work. Further information to follow shortly.
Since March, works by the Austrian artist Franz West have entered a surprising and often funny dialogue with Cy Twombly’s works on the upper floor in the museum. Also we have now devoted two of the galleries almost exclusively to Twombly’s sculpture. They highlight the strong holdings the Brandhorst collection has in this field and show off the works as you have never seen them before. To find out more, click here.
Behind the scenes, preparations are in full swing for a major exhibition of works by the American photographer Richard Avedon (to be seen from 18 July onwards). Works recently acquired by the Brandhorst Collection will be accompanied by loans from the Avedon Foundation and presented in a spectacular show. For further information, click here.
Thank you for re-visiting with us.
