Point of intersection Linz

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 31 Maggio 2009

amulfLinz Lentos Art Museum Ernst-Koref-Promenade 1 until 9/8/2009. The exhibition Point of Intersection explores the significance of Linz as a place where art is created and collected. In the surroundings of the Art University and Ars Electronica, Linz is not only a fascinating place for art productions, but also cultivates a vibrant practice of collecting modern and contemporary art. This is reflected in both the international orientation of the Lentos Collection and in the city purchases of contemporary art affiliated with Linz.  The confrontations result in cross-connections and new perspectives: for instance, a profound engagement with human existence is just as inherent to the portraits by Oskar Kokoschka or Maria Lassnig as to those by Irma Kapeller or Herwig Kempinger. Landscape serves not only Caspar David Friedrich and Max Klinger, but also young, contemporary artists such as Mathias Kessler or Julie Monaco as a window to the understanding of nature in their time, thus forming a mirror of the respective society both in the 19th and in the 21st century.  In a diversity of media, fascinating connections unfold in eight thematic areas, such as the portrait, abstraction, landscape and science. There is a special focus on works dealing with socially relevant issues (migration, identity, social issues, globalization, gender issues) and on intermedia, artistic approaches (art and science, text and image, painting and sculpture).
