The Albertina Museum, Vienna, will present new work by Katharina Grosse created for the museum’s Columned Hall. Spreading out over the historic hall’s ceiling, walls, and floor, Grosse’s groundbreaking form of expanded painting transcends the ‘white cube’ and addresses architectural history. In the Albertina, visitors will enter into the artist’s vibrating fields of colour, thereby shaking up accustomed ways of seeing and embracing an immediate experience of three-dimensional art. The new artwork will be created onsite in the Columned Hall and will be visible – and walkable – for this exhibition only.

For her exhibition Shifting the Stars, Katharina Grosse will occupy the Centre Pompidou-Metz’s monumental Grande Nef, a space that soars to a height of more than 20 metres. Some 8000 m² of fabric suspended from the ceiling by enormous knots will form a new space inside the gallery, taking the form of billowing drapery whose exuberant colours and energy will spill out from the Grande Nef onto the forecourt of the Centre Pompidou-Metz. The exhibition invites visitors to pass through a screen of paint,  plunging them into Grosse’s world of colour and movement.

Kunstmuseum Bonn will present the first comprehensive exhibition of Katharina Grosse’s studio paintings. Known internationally for her expansive works which she paints on-site, often including extensive sections of exterior spaces, Grosse subverts conventional relationships between foreground and background in her paintings, thereby opening up new imaginative worlds.

Presenting around forty studio paintings from the late 1980s to the present, the exhibition is divided into two thematic fields: Returns/Revisions/Inventions and Fissures/Ruptures. While the former includes a broad array of paintings created since the early 1990s and sheds light on the artist’s cyclical manner of working, the latter concentrates on the various methods with which Grosse breaks up the medium of painting in order to extend its borders. This endeavour involves the inclusion of natural materials such as soil and branches so as to reinterpret the customary relationship between painting and physical space.
