Förg in Venice (solo show)
To coincide with the 58th Venice Biennale
The Dallas Museum of Art at Palazzo Contarini Polignac, Venice
11 May - 23 August 2019
The Dallas Museum of Art (DMA) will present an exhibition of works by Günther Förg (1952-2013) at the Palazzo Contarini Polignac in Venice, during the Biennale Arte 2019. An official Collateral Event of the 58th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia, Förg in Venice follows the Dallas presentation of Günther Förg: A Fragile Beauty, the first American museum exhibition devoted to the artist in more than three decades, organized by the Dallas Museum of Art in collaboration with the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam in 2018. Developed in close collaboration with the Estate of Günther Förg, Förg in Venice brings together over 30 pieces from the artist’s multidisciplinary practice – focusing on his paintings and lesser known sculptural work – to reflect on the expansive and intuitive methods of this manifold, intellectual artist.
