"The Problem Perspective"

March 1–May 11, 2009

The Joan and Preston Robert Tisch Exhibition Gallery, sixth floor

ne of the most significant and influential artists of our time, Martin Kippenberger (1953–1997) produced a complex and richly varied body of work from the mid-1970s until his untimely death in 1997 at the age of forty-four. This ambitious, large-scale exhibition includes key selections and bodies of work from his entire career: paintings, sculpture, works on paper, installations, multiples, photographs, posters, announcement cards, books, and music. The exhibition will be accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue—published by MOCA and co-published by the MIT Press—which will constitute a comprehensive and scholarly examination of the artist's career.
Martin Kippenberger: The Problem Perspective is organized by The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (MOCA). The exhibition is curated by Ann Goldstein, MOCA Senior Curator, and organized at MoMA by Ann Temkin, The Marie-Josée and Henry Kravis Chief Curator of Painting and Sculpture.
The presentation of the exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art is supported by Marie-Josée and Henry Kravis, Sue and Edgar Wachenheim III, and The Contemporary Arts Council of The Museum of Modern Art.
Additional funding is provided by Benjamin Moore Paints.
