Hans Hollein

27.11.2011-09.04.2012 10:00-17:00

Opening: Samstag, 26.11.2011
Curated by: Peter Weibel
Co-Curator: Günther Holler-Schuster

An artist was sought for the opening exhibition of the Neue Galerie Graz who fits with the idea of the Universalmuseum and who has a connection with the history of the Neue Galerie Graz.

As a fine artist, designer and architect, Hans Hollein is a universal artist. He was shown at the Biennale of Venice in 1972 by Wilfried Skreiner, former head of the Neue Galerie. As an architect Hans Hollein is world-famous.

He is the only Austrian Pritzker Award winner, and President of the Architectural Biennale of Venice. His early artistic work, which resulted in exhibitions in MoMA in New York and in the Centre Pompidou in Paris among others, has disappeared from view, yet he has worked with such important artists as Christo, Ernst Oldenburg and Joseph Beuys.

In this exhibition for the first time, the entire work of the artist, designer and architect is presented to the public on such a scale, complemented by a comprehensive publication.
