Brice Marden (*1938) is a major figure in the league of abstract post-war artists. Starting in the 1960s with monochrome paintings, ongoing to works highly attached to asian calligraphy, his influence on the history of modern art is undeniable. A fact for the New York Museum of Modern Art to arrange a detailed retrospective which has now arrived in Berlin at Hamburger Bahnhof Museum fuer Gegenwart.
It is our pleasure to present - with great support from a renown New York private collection and further generous loans - our additional contribution to this major retrospective in our new premises in 5 minutes walking distance to Hamburger Bahnhof. Our exhibition A TRIBUTE TO BRICE MARDEN includes an important early work- one of his charcoal drawings from 1962 as well as a drawing related to the Basel churchwindow campagne.
Besides Marden's drawings and etchings we are proud to access works on paper from a larger scale of artists from his New Yorker environment as Sol LeWitt, Fred Sandback, Al Taylor or Terry Winters but also works from our own program like Frank Badur, Mark Sheinkman or Thomas Mueller in a gripping dialog to Brice Mardens work.
