Cloud & Crystal
The Dorothee and Konrad Fischer Collection
September 24, 2016 – January 08, 2017
The renunciation of the image was one of the most momentous upheavals in the history of twentieth century art. Now, Conceptual Art supplanted the position formerly occupied by painting. This shift is highlighted by more than 200 works from artists such as Carl Andre and Sol LeWitt, which are juxtaposed with works by Jackson Pollock, Robert Rauschenberg, and Andy Warhol. The presentation also underscores the major role played by the Düsseldorf art dealer and collector Konrad Fischer within the international art scene of the 1960s.
Otto Dix – The Evil Eye
February 11 – May 14, 2017
Beginning in 1922, Otto Dix spent several explosively creative years in Düsseldorf. During this period, he developed the critical handwriting that made him so unmistakable within twentieth century art. The exhibition is devoted to this artistically and personally decisive phase of his career. On view will be approximately 120 paintings, watercolors, and graphic works from German and international collections.
