Perspectives 143: Katharina Grosse @ Nina and Michael Zilkha Gallery

Berlin-based artist Katharina Grosse creates a site-specific installation conceived especially for the Museum’s Perspectives Gallery spaces.  Grosse transforms the gallery’s architecture with one of her radiant, atmospheric, color field paintings, creating an installation whose performative nature chronicles layers of brilliant color applied with a spray gun.  Her gestural strokes, combined with her spray-painting technique, blur the artificial distinctions between painting and installation to turn the space into a sensory burst of intense color.  The catalogue includes an interview with the artist by Lynn M. Herbert and documentation on the artist’s career.
