Warhol to Richter

Until 19 April 2015

The current Albertina Contemporary presentation highlights a small selection from the ALBERTINA Museum‘s sample holdings of contemporary art, which comprise some 20,000 works. Four positions are being addressed: The Impasto and Deformation after World War II – from Francis Bacon to Karel Appel, Comics and Celebrities – Prints and Paintings of American Pop, Gerhard Richter – Irony and Emancipation as well as Sigmar Polke and Maria Lassnig.

Since its foundation in 1776, art of the relevant period has always found a place at the center of new acquisitions. In continuation of the tradition established at the very outset and observed by the collection's initiator, Albert von Sachsen-Teschen, contemporary works on paper are an essential ingredient of museum policy governing collections and exhibitions.  The exhibition of the museum's own items of contemporary art, allowing insights into the most recent period of art history, is thus a core task for the ALBERTINA Museum and one which adheres closely to tradition.
