Must See Berlin

Friday, March 6

  • Ends March 14th 2015

  • Markus Lüpertz’s first major solo exhibition in Berlin in five years presents new large-scale paintings bearing the artist’s signature mixture of abstraction and figuration. Using Greek mythology as his subject matter, Lüpertz disrupts would-be classical scenes by inserting seemingly contradictory elements like fragmented bodies, animal skulls, and helmets.
