The Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden and the Museum Frieder Burda are celebrating the tenth anniversary of the Museum Frieder Burda\, presenting highlights from the collection which has constantly grown for fo rty years. As was the case on the occasion of the museum opening in 2004\, the exhibition will again present various groups of works from the extensiv e holdings of the collection at two venues &mdash\; at the neo-classical St aatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden designed by Hermann Billing During as well as in the museum building designed by Richard Meier. The anniversary exhibi tion is being curated by Helmut Friedel (Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden) and Gö\;tz Adriani (Museum Frieder Burda).


Exhibition at Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden

Works by Gü\;n ther Uecker\, Heinz Mack\, Adolf Luther\, and Christian Maggert\, on the ot her hand\, represent an important phase of postwar German art history. In 1 958\, the artists joined forces to establish the ZERO group\, propagating a n idealistic fresh start in art through their purist light-kinetic wall obj ects. Extensive monographic groups of works by Gerhard Richter\, Georg Base litz\, and Sigmar Polke from the 1960s to the present take on a unique role in the Collection Frieder Burda. Unlike ZERO\, they stand for the enormous prominence of the picture and its continuity in German painting of the pas t fifty years. These are supplemented by outstanding paintings by Eugen Sch ö\;nebeck\, Anselm Kiefer\, Markus Lü\;pertz\, and Arnulf Rainer\; by Neo Rauch\, Herbert Brandl\, Corinne Wasmuht\, Karin Kneffel\, as well a s by other contemporary artists. \;

The anniversary catalogue \;

The publication includes illustrations and the descriptions of numerous works from the collection\, an interview with Frieder Burda\, as well as a tribute to Richard Meier&rsquo\;s museum architecture. It furthermore provides insight into all of the Museum Friede r Burda&rsquo\;s previous exhibitions. With contributions by Gö\;tz Adr iani\, Hans-Joachim Mü\;ller\, Wolfgang Pehnt\, et al. Hatje Cantz Verl ag\; German and French\, 336 pages\, 35 euros.

From July to October four of the Henry Moore Institute's gal leries are dedicated to the work of Gego (1912-94)\, an artist who faithful ly explored the possibilities of the line as an object. Gego was born Gertr ud Goldschmidt in Hamburg\, 1912\, and emigrated to Caracas in 1939 immedia tely after finishing her architectural studies in Stuttgart. In Venezuela s he began working as an artist in the 1950s\, and became a citizen in 1952.< /p>\n

For five decades Gego expanded the line into planes\, volumes and e xpansive nets to reflect on the nature of perception. \;Gego. Line as Object \;investigates the artist's unrivalled engagement with t he problems of form and space\, using light\, shadow\, scale and gravity in a constant process of discovery. This first UK solo presentation of Gego u nderlines her visionary approach to sculpture\, a terminology that she refu sed to use for her own work. In one of her notebooks she exclaimed: 'Sculpt ure\, three-dimensional forms of solid material. Never what I do!' Sculptur e is concerned with weight\, scale\, gravity\, light\, space and encounter: terms embodied by Gego's study of the line as object. Here at the Henry Mo ore Institute\, a centre for the study of sculpture\, her work is claimed f or sculpture. Gego's sculptures or\, as she preferred to call them\, \; bichos \;directly address the phenomenological encounter with sculpture.


The selection of works in \;Gego. Line as Object  \;span a thirty-four year period. It begins in 1957\, when Gego e xplicitly began to address sculptural thinking with the work 'Vibration in Black'. This torso-sized continuous form of painted black aluminium hangs f rom the ceiling\, gently responding to air movement and spreading its volum e through shadows. The latest works are from 1991\, when Gego concentrated on her 'Tedejuras':  \;interlaced paper strips that combined  \;rep roductions of her own works with pages from magazines and gold cigarette wr appings. Between these two points Gego made large-scale nets\, columns and spheres that filled gallery spaces\, as well as watercolours\, ink drawings \, prints and lithographs exploring the line in space\, hand-sized sculptur es made from material found in her studio and sculptures that stretched bet ween the buildings in her home city of Caracas.


Gego was interested in the limitless possibilities of growth of the line. \;The Gego Found ation \;in Caracas\, where research for this exhibition was conducted\, holds the artist's book collection that includes an annotated copy of  \;D'Arcy Wentworth Thompson's \;On Growth and Form \;(1917 )\, a book that has lodged itself within the consciousness of twentieth-cen tury sculpture and that is the subject of our concurrent Gallery 4 exhibiti on.

John Byrne's artistic career began in 1967 when he assumed t he identity of the naive painter 'Patrick' for a series of shows at the Por tal Gallery\, London. A true renaissance man\, Byrne is an artist\, playwri ght and theatre designer whose paintings feature in the Scottish National P ortrait Gallery\, Edinburgh and the Kelvingrove Art Gallery\,Glasgow. His p aintings have an unresolved and dreamlike sense of narrative that includes references to mortality and Catholicism as well as 1950s Paisley.

A 'Cabinet of Curiosities' will exhibit alongside the John Byrne exhibiti on and will also feature his work. Byrne's idiosyncratic style will be matc hed by the variety and interest of objects\, historical and contemporary\, on display.
