Introducing a new generation of German artists at the Goethe-Gallery from Oct 2014 to Dec 2015
From October 2014 to December 2015, Goethe-Institut Hongkong presents an exhibition series that introduces a new generation of German artists to Hong Kong. In each exhibition, works by four to five established and promising young German artists will be presented at the Goethe-Gallery. Among them, one or two featured artists will be invited to Hong Kong to give talks and to meet the local general public. The exhibitions will take a similar title with a different focus each time, and all of them will be held in partnership with a different local organisation.
The second exhibition is:
“Statement 2: New Painting from Germany”
11.3. – 11.4.2015 | Goethe-Gallery and Black Box Studio
A talk with the curator, Marc Wellmann, art historian and artistic director of Haus am Lützowplatz in Berlin, will be held on March 15, 2015 (Sunday) from 3:00pm to 4:40pm in Goethe-Institut Hongkong.
Presented by Goethe-Institut Hongkong
and in collaboration with The Ministry of Art
and Haus am Lützowplatz
, “Statement 2: New Painting from Germany” will be held from March 11 to April 11, 2015 at the Goethe-Gallery and Black Box Studio of Goethe-Institut Hongkong.
The participating artists are Stefanie Gutheil
(b. 1980), whose colourful figurative paintings combine the tradition of German Expressionism with the imagery of the present; Uwe Henneken
(b. 1974), who represents the position of a contemporary romantic with his profound sense of humour and extreme erudition; Florian Meisberg
(b. 1980, lives in New York), whose works deal with the global experience of the digital parallel world; Sebastian Neeb
(b. 1980), who allows the different painting styles - from old masters to abstraction - collide with each other to great effect; Tanja Rochelmeyer
(b. 1975), whose world of forms related to architecture takes its cue from classical modernism; Christoph Ruckhäberle
(b. 1972), who used to deal with different figurative pictorial traditions as a representative of the New Leipzig School and now presents large-scale abstract musical structures.
The exhibition is one of the VIP programmes of Art Basel Hong Kong 2015
