Milwaukee Art Museum In Conversation: Katharina Grosse

May 7, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Free and open to all via Zoom
Join the Milwaukee Art Museum’s Contemporary Art Society for a virtual conversation with German artist Katharina Grosse and Margaret Andera, interim chief curator and curator of contemporary art. Untitled (2019) by Grosse was recently acquired for the Museum’s collection, with support from the Contemporary Art Society. The painting is not only the first work by the artist to enter the collection but also the first by a female artist in the Museum’s collection of contemporary German paintings.
Grosse is known for her brightly colored acrylic paintings and installations, explorations of color density and temperature, and the interplay between color and light. Grosse has exhibited internationally, and her work is in major museum collections, including at the Museum of Modern Art, in New York. Untitled is on view along the route through the first-floor galleries.
Sponsored by Milwaukee Art Museum’s Contemporary Art Society.
