Winter Group Show „EATINGTHESKY“ 15.11.2019 – 15.02.2020

Location:  Nürnberg

 

GALERIE FRANK FLUEGEL, with a strong focus on Contemporary Art and Pop Art will show various artworks of its collection during the winter months. The Winter Group Show EATINGTHESKY displays the use of typography in art with artwork of John Giorno, Iván Navarro, Mel Bochner, David Shrigley, Ruby Anemic, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Indiana, Mr. Brainwash and more.

 

On view will be original graphics, collages and sculptures with the central theme text. In 20th century art - especially since Concept Art - there are numerous artistic positions in which text becomes an artistic medium. As a poetic force, text is added to the visual information of the images. Signs, words and sentences become the triggers of the imagination and interpenetrate with the expressiveness of the images. But signs, words and sentences also replace the classical image. 

 

John Giorno died in October 2019 at the age of 82 in his hometown New York. The poet, artist and activist was a contemporary and lover of Andy Warhol during the 1960s and was the leading actor in his movie „Sleep“. He is one of the key figures in the New York art scene and explored the development and use of modern communication technology. But he also became known for his poetic writing on canvas. Giorno was married to Ugo Rondinone until his death.

 

Ugo Rondinone (*1964) is certainly regarded as one of the best-known contemporary conceptual and installation artists. Born in Switzerland, he lives and works in Zurich and New York. His works can be found in almost every important museums of the world. Galerie Frank Flügel currently has two new artworks by Rondinone in its program.

 

A new world record for a painting by the American Pop Art artist Alex Katz was set at the Phillips auction house in London on October 2nd, 2019. The painting Blue Umbrella I from 1972 achieved £3,375,000 / US$ 4.1 million. We have numerous works by Alex Katz in our program, including prints, paintings, and sculptures.
