anne truitt in 'raum der linie - line and space' at museum wiesbaden, germany

12 July 2012
With "Line and Space", the Museum Wiesbaden is presenting a concise selection of predominantly American artists, including gallery artist Anne Truitt, from the 1960s and 70s from a Munich private collection. The unique quality of the collection is the juxtaposition of concentrated bundles that enable most of the artistic reflections to illustrate more understandably on the way to their respective own position and statement. The exhibition in the Museum Wiesbaden opens on Thursday, 12th July and the works can be seen from then until 7th October as part of "Line and Space".

Beside drawings and sketches, individually selected sculptures and installations show the transformation and implementation of these ideas into material and space. In this context, the contrast of drawing and object is seen as a dialogue in which the tension between spatial presentation and actual experience is ventilated. At the same time, one has an insight into the artist's own search for a redefinition of the artistic statement and its meaning for how reality is seen and interpreted.

During the exhibition at the Museum Wiesbaden the following people will be presented: Carl Andre, Jennifer Bartlett, Mel Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, Bill Bollinger, Jan Dibbets, Dan Flavin, Robert Grosvenor, Michael Heizer, Donald Judd, Barry Le Va, Sol LeWitt, Robert Mangold, Walter de Maria, Agnes Martin, Gordon Matta‐Clark, Charlotte Posenenske, Gerhard Richter, Bridget Riley, Robert Ryman, Fred Sandback, Alan Saret, Robert Smithson, James Turrell and Richard Tuttle.

The exhibition was made possible by cooperation with the Graphische Sammlung in the Pinakothek der Moderne Munich.

The exhibition continues until 7 October 2012.
