    Will Anselm Kiefer ever overcome his limited American reputation as Germany’s premier history painter, working the nation through its National Socialist past? This sixty-work survey will provide US viewers with a metaphysical take on the artist’s practice. The exhibition traces the dialogue between heaven and earth in Kiefer’s oeuvre, from one of his earliest artist’s books, The Heavens, 1969, to recent engagements with Jewish mysticism.
