Für Barbara, curated by Leo Koenig (group show)
Hall Art Foundation I Schloss Derneburg, Derneburg
1 July 2017 - 31 March 2018
The Hall Art Foundation is pleased to announce a group exhibition, Für Barbara, to be held at its Schloss Derneburg location in honor of recently deceased gallerist Barbara Weiss. A lifelong advocate for women in the arts, Weiss was also a friend of the Hall's and inspired the inclusion of many works by female artists in the Hall and Hall Art Foundation collections. The exhibition, curated by Leo Koenig, includes over 90 paintings, sculptures, photographs, installations, works on paper and videos by an international and multi-generational roster of female artists dating from the 1950s to 2017.
''In and beyond her gallery, Barbara advocated for women of all generations and in all positions in the arts. Her calm resolve and unruffled tenacity never overshadowed the self-determination of her artists, or eclipsed the autonomy of their work. With this exhibition, we celebrate a woman who subtly challenged the status quo by introducing ideas that would have been deemed revolutionary were they presented by any other person. The radical was an everyday occurrence with Barbara, because she presented it as fundamental.''
