Italy's largest monographic exhibition of Albert Oehlen at Palazzo Grassi


Palazzo Grassi in Venice is hosting the largest monographic exhibition in Italy of contemporary artist Albert Oehlen until Jan. 6, 2019.

Palazzo Grassi in Venice is hosting from April 8, 2018 to January 6, 2019 the solo exhibition"Cows by the water" by German artist Albert Oehlen (1954, Krefeld, Germany).

Curated by Caroline Bourgeois, the retrospective presents Oehlen’s art to the public through the display of more than eighty of his works created from the 1980s to the present that come from the Pinault Collection and international museums, as well as private collections.

The exhibition aims to highlight, through a path between different genres and periods, the central role of music in the artist’s production: the pictorial gestures are the result of contamination and rhythm, improvisation and repetition, density and harmony of sounds.

This is the largest Italian monographic exhibition dedicated to Albert Oehlen, one of the leading figures in contemporary painting.

The atrium of Palazzo Grassi will also host his"Cofftea/Kafftee" project.
