Exhibition in cooperation with steirischer herbst.

In cooperation with the Museum Ludwig Cologne and the MADRE Naples, Kunsthaus Graz is putting on a major retrospective of Franz West. The exhibition involves close co-operation with the artist and his studio and archives. Works from all creative periods and a wide range of media and techniques show the complexity and individuality of his work – graphics, posters, “Passstücke”, furniture, installations and joint projects with other artists. Many of the works exhibited come from private collections, and have rarely been exhibited. Franz West will also erect an outside sculpture in the immediate environment of the Kunsthaus Graz.


The exhibition is on view in Cologne from Dec 12, 2009 until March 14, 2010 and in Naples from May 8 until Aug 23, 2010.
