Eddie Martinez @ Kunstmuseum Bonn

New York Painting, Kunstmuseum Bonn, Bonn, Germany

Although globalization has expanded our knowledge of the artistic production over Europe and America also, the art market scoured even the remotest regions of the world for promising talents, so limit the appeal of the big cities but in any way. Considering only the supply of important artists working in New York, then it turns out that the city has apparently lost none of its appeal. In particular, this applies to the extremely vital art scene, which has strengthened learn influx of the American west coast in recent years.Today, it seems, is the painting in New York as lively as in the times of Abstract Expressionism in the 1950s and Pop Art in the 1960s - except that now a plurality of styles and forms of expression is observed. After the painting was pronounced dead a long time she finds the last few years an impressive Renaissance, supported by a generation of artists who no longer can dictate from the outside, what is artistic to do or not do. Unconditionally and completely sovereign namely test especially those born in the 1970s and early 1980s, artists painting as a medium, which is why the focus of the Bonn exhibition is also on the artists of this generation. Shown are newer and more recent works by eleven artists personalities. It spans the range of the experiment in painting a Matt Connors, over the wild post-Pop painting of Eddie Martinez, to the neo-conceptual approaches Antek Walczak one or Ned Vena. Without a style to assign the priority, the exhibition documents the rich panorama of the genre of painting that has left the grave ideological struggles for their existence behind and today again plays a leading role in the art world.

This exhibition project Art Museum continues his exploration of American painting, under which Overview exhibitions of the work of Philip Guston, Robert Ryman and Brice Marden were shown to continue. A comprehensive, richly illustrated, 160-page catalog with introductory essays by Richard Shiff and Christoph Schreier will accompany the exhibition.
