Katharina Grosse in the Trade Fair Palace
The exhibition Wunderbild of the artist Katharina Grosse is currently being installed in the café and in front of the Trade Fair Palace. We apologize for any inconvenience and are looking forward to seeing you at the Grand Opening on February 15!
The German artist Katharina Grosse has prepared a large-scale painting installation in the Great Hall that directly reacts to the industrial space of the gallery built in the Functionalist style in the late 1920s. The exhibition is an architectural painting, a spatial image, in which viewers find their niche using their own bodies and minds.
Katharina Grosse is also creating an artistic intervention on the boundary between architecture and the natural setting outside the gallery. Her often huge, site-specific structures in interiors (institutional space) and exteriors (public space), which frequently integrate organic matter (trees, stones, soil, etc.) are hybrids that cross the dividing line between nature and culture.
We apologize for the inconvenience caused by the installation of the exhibition in the Café Jedna and the public space in front of the Trade Fair Palace.
The Grand Opening of the exhibitions Katharina Grosse: Wunderbild, Maria Lassnig 1919-2014, Moving Image Department #8: Maria Lassnig, Lukáš Karbus, Poetry Passage #6: Radek Brousil, Johan Grimonprez and Introducing Patricia Dauder: Surface will take place on February 15, 2018 from 7 p.m. at the Trade Fair Palace.
Looking forward to seeing you at the event!
