Baselitz: Six Decades
From: 10:00 AM to 5:30 PM
Baselitz: Six Decades is the first major US retrospective in more than twenty years of one of Germanys greatest living artists, marking the artists 80th birthday. With more than 100 works highlighting every phase of Baselitzs six-decade career from the 1950s to today, this milestone exhibition features work never before seen in the U.S. and cements Baselitzs reputation as one of the most original and inventive figurative artists of his generation.
Baselitz: Six Decades will span the Hirshhorns second floor galleries, and features iconic paintings, works on paper and wood and bronze sculptures from renowned private and public collections across Europe and North America.
Organized in partnership with the Fondation Beyeler, the exhibition is curated by Hirshhorn chief curator Stéphane Aquin and the Beyeler curator at large Martin Schwander. It opens at the Beyeler in Basel, Switzerland on January 21, before traveling to D.C. The Hirshhorn hosted Baselitzs first-ever career retrospective in 1996, and this new exhibition builds on that milestone with an expanded look at his exceptional career.
