Krazy for Koons: Dual Exhibits in Frankfurt
Jul 6, 2012
Jeff Koons at a Frankfurt press conference on June 19, 2012.
Frankfurt is celebrating Jeff Koons, and Jeff Koons is celebrating a world premiere in Frankfurt: the Schirn Kunsthalle and the Liebieghaus Skulpturensammlung are each devoting an exhibition to this exceptional American artist and his new series entitled "Antiquity".
Some of his classic works are also on view. The Schirn is focusing on Koons' structural development as a painter with 45 monumental pictures; at the Liebieghaus, Koons' sculptures enter into a dialogue with the historical collection.
Both exhibitions run through September 23, 2012.
Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt
The German Expressionists influenced the cultural landscape of Europe in a language of color that produced some of the finest artworks of the 20th century.
A new exhibit that opened on May 24 in Albrecht Dürer's hometown of Nuremberg showcases works by the great German Renaissance artist with a focus on his formative years.
August Macke produced paintings that enchant viewers with vibrant hues atomized into angular abstractions of pleasant scenes including lush parks, families and urban flaneurs bursting forth like love letters to life's little pleasures.
