DANCING WITH MYSELF AT MUSEUM FOLKWANG ESSEN
Self-portrait and Self-invention / works from the PINAULT COLLECTION


From October 7, 2016, to January 15, 2017, the large exhibition hall in the Museum Folkwang will be given over to an artistic examination of the self. The thread that links the pieces together is the multifaceted presence of the artists in their own work. It will be the first time that such a substantial number of the outstanding group of works acquired by Francois Pinault is to be put on display in Germany. Dancing with Myself is a playful, poetic, poltical, and wild dance through contemporary art moving from the 1960s up to our own time. At the same time Dancing with Myself is also a vibrant media crossover.

FROM DUERER TO VAN GOGH AT WALLRAF-RICHARTZ-MUSEUM COLOGNE
Bührle Collection meets Wallraf Collection
23 Sept 2016 - 29 Jan 2017


Two of the most important collections meeting each other at the Wallraf-Richartz-Museum in Cologne.
In November 1956, shortly before his unexpected death, the Zurich-based industrialist Emil Bührle recalled how his passion for collecting had arisen: ‘Monet’s magic would just not lose its hold on me, and I wanted to have Cézanne, Degas, Manet and Renoir around me all the time, on my walls.’ Within a few years he had amassed an astonishing number of outstanding works of art from all major periods, from the Gothic to the Cubism. Impressionism remained his greatest love, however, and here his interests coincide with those of the Wallraf-Richartz-Museum. Both were at times competing for the finest paintings on the art market in the first half of the 1950s, and today, sixty years after Bührle’s death, some 64 master­works from the two collections are entering into a unique dialogue at the Museum. Along with items by the artists named above the exhibition features works by Dürer, Cuyp, Canaletto, Delacroix, Courbet, Sisley, Pissarro, Gauguin, van Gogh, Picasso, Braque and others. The exhibition will be shown only in Cologne.

The Dorothee and Konrad Fischer Collection
23 Sept 2016 - 8 Jan 2017


With the exhibition "Cloud & Crystal. The Dorothee and Konrad Fischer Collection" the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen celebrates the acquisition of the art collection formerly owned by the famous Düsseldorf gallerist couple Dorothee and Konrad Fischer. These works of Conceptual Art and Minimalism represent a decisive complement to the collection of US postwar painting already owned by the Kunstsammlung. Konrad Fischer emblematizes the international breakthrough of these advanced artistic tendencies like virtually no other figure. Beginning in the 1960s, his gallery became a meeting point for artists and collectors and catapulted Düsseldorf to the Mount Olympus of the contemporary avant-garde.
