ALBERTINA Contemporary Art presents artworks created from the second half of the 20th century to the present. Around 80 works by artists including Anselm Kiefer, Gerhard Richter, Gottfried Helnwein, Georg Baselitz, Alex Katz, and Maria Lassnig represent the broad diversity of post-1945 artistic stances.
Key works illustrate international trends running from hyperrealism to abstraction and from color-aesthetic to political themes, thereby exemplifying the multifaceted artistic output of the past several decades. A highlight is the very first showing of newly acquired works by Brigitte Kowanz, Los Carpinteros, Frenzi Rigling, Rainer Wölzl and Kiki Smith.
The exhibition is on view from 12 July 2018 until 31 March 2019.
