RO'MA AT ALBION GALLERY

UPCOMING EXHIBITION IN LONDON: RO'MA AT ALBION GALLERY


written by Don Porcella and Peter Duhon in New York

Here at Art Comments we are extremely excited to announce an amazing exhibition opening in London (NYC's twin city) this January 16 at Albion, a unique collaboration between two artists, Rosemarie Trockel and Marcus Lüpertz, associated with the highly acclaimed Kunstakademie Düsseldorf – The Dusseldorf Art Academy, which some consider as the leading art university in Germany and has produced many German masters as well as attracted famous teachers to its faculty. Some of the artists associated with the Dusseldorf Art Academy reads like a who's who of German Art (Paul Klee, Joseph Beuys, Gerhard Richter, Jörg Immendorff, Thomas Ruff, Rosemarie Trockel, A.R. Penck and the "artist prince" Markus Lüpertz, director of the academy.)

What makes this exhibition unique is the juxtaposition of two vastly different approaches:

1. Trockel's work attempts to initiate conceptual dialogue, along the school of thought championed by Marcel Duchamp.
2. Lüpertz’s work is on the opposite end of the spectrum, communicating and expressing through aesthetic, painterly and pictorial means.
