In Light of the Infinite

Romanticism and the Present
Opening Dec 16, 2012 at 07:00 pm
Start date Dec 16, 2012
End date Feb 24, 2013

The exhibition “In Light of the Infinite – Romanticism and the Present” explores aspects of Romanticism in contemporary art. In diverse artistic positions, including photographs, installations and videos by artists ranging from Marina Abramovic to José Maria Mellado and Bill Viola, the exhibition will explore contemporary artists’ romantic view of the world, people and art. According to a definition provided by Charles Baudelaire in 1848, “Anyone talking about Romanticism is talking about modern art, i.e. the intimacy, the spirituality, the colour and the search for the infinite - expressed through all of the means available to art”. Although the forms and images, as well as the means and the possibilities, have changed considerably, the desire to create art that can change the world is still just as much alive today as is the desire to personally experience becoming one with nature in an attempt to counterbalance the material world with something transcendental, the functional with something mysterious and the banal with something meaningful.

Ironisch, provokant, witzig – seit seinen Anfängen im New Yorker East Village der frühen 1980er-Jahre hat der US-amerikanische Künstler George Condo ein unverwechselbares Œuvre geschaffen. Seine von beißendem Humor, surrealistisch anmutender Absurdität und überbordendem Pathos gekennzeichnete Malerei nimmt – von Velázquez über Picasso bis Gorky – immer wieder Bezug zu den Traditionen der amerikanischen und europäischen Kunstgeschichte der letzten 500 Jahre. In Zusammenarbeit mit der Londoner Hayward Gallery präsentiert die SCHIRN eine umfassende Retrospektive des Künstlers, dessen Stil sich als künstlicher Realismus beschreiben lässt. Seine Gemälde wie seine Skulpturen legen die anhaltende Auseinandersetzung des Künstlers mit der menschlichen Physiognomie und allzu menschlichen Geisteszuständen offen. Neben 66 bedeutenden Gemälden aus unterschiedlichen Schaffensperioden zeigt die Schirn in thematisch und stilistisch geordneten Gruppen zudem eine Auswahl von etwa zehn Skulpturen sowie neue Arbeiten George Condos.
