American Drawings and Sculpture Since 1960, From A Private Collection
28 July - 25 September, 2011
A joint exhibition by the Staatliche Graphische Sammlung and the Sammlung Moderne Kunst.
Focussing on concise groups of works, this exhibition strives to illustrate the relationship between the media of sculpture and drawing by taking an exemplary selection of works largely by American artists from the sixties and seventies. The subtle dialogue between the conceptual notion of `disegno¿ and a sensual transformation into material form as a sculpture, will form the centre of attention.
The emphasis in this private collection, presented here for the first time, is on important early groups of works on paper and one or two sculptures by Donald Judd, Fred Sandback, Sol Lewitt, Gordon Matta-Clark, Barry Le Va, James Turell and Robert Grosvenor, more extensive groups of drawings by Dan Flavin and Mel Bochner, as well as drawings and one sculpture in each case by Carl Andre, Charlotte Posenenske, Robert Smithson and Richard Tuttle, and further drawings by Jo Baer, Jennifer Bartlett, Anne Truitt, Hanne Darboven, Agnes Martin, Bridget Riley, Christo, Michael Heizer, Alighiero Boetti, Jan Dibbets, Robert Mangold, Paul Morgensen, Robert Ryman, Alan Saret and Keith Sonnier.
