Decorated Fountains and Singing Musicians. ( I love Munich in the Summer. This is definitely a reason to be at Viktualienmarkt at 1100 today. I will take some photos and post them later!
A Walk in the Park Exhibition – Schloss Nymphenburg 43, 80638 Munich, Germany
The two painters Barbara Schricke and Florian Weingärtner show recent works in geraniums house in Nymphenburg Palace Park. The contrast between the abstract (Schricke) and figurative painting (tenants) of artists, both with studies among others, Markus Lüpertz, shows very different positions in the debate with color and canvas but also with the translation of experiences and emotions, and the appearance of these. Thus creating the two painters an interesting tension in the light-flooded exhibition space of geraniums house, right next to the Castle Cafe at the Palm House of the Nymphenburger Palace. Opening the exhibition is open daily from 10-18 clock. The artists are alternately present. Vernissage, Friday, 08.07.2015 18-20 clock associated with the invitation to a sundowner.
Showing the Unsayable. Artists as Warner and Wiitnesses – First exhibition at the New National Socialist Documentation Center “Show the unspeakable.” 120 works by well known and unknown artists.
City Museum – Stadtmuseum – New York 60s – Sepp Werkmeister – From 31st July to 27th September 2015 St.-Jakobs-Platz 1 80331 München
An exhibition just opened at the Munich City Museum “Muenchner Stadtmuseum” As a street photographer, I’m super happy to see an exhibition of Sepp Werkmeister’s work from the 60s and 70s. The museum always has interesting photography exhibitions and I’m sure this one will be just as Fab. I plan on going next week. Because the weekend is going to be so warm, I would suggest seeing the exhibition and then having a cool drink in the outdoor cafe found right outside the museum doors.

August 8, 2015 LAST DAY TO SEE CINDY SHERMAN EXHIBITION
Tel. 089-95 93 96 90
Fax 089-95 93 96 96 9
- Thursday & Friday: 2 – 6 p.m.
- Saturday: 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Here is the Press Release:
The staging of female role models is the central theme of Cindy Sherman’s work, in which the American artist explores stereotypes of the collective visual memory in a media-driven society. With her photographs, Cindy Sherman (born 1954 in Glen Ridge, New Jersey, U.S.) has had a lasting influence on 20th century art. Much like an actress, she portrays herself in different roles before the camera. Although Sherman’s photographs are self-portraits in the traditional sense, they do not reveal much about the artist’s personality. Rather, her primary concern is the deconstruction of gender roles and stereotypes. Sherman developed early in her childhood an obsession for disguise and masquerade, which she further pursued at the Art Academy in Buffalo. The artist became known with her black and white series, Untitled Film Stills (1977-1980), in which she embodied stereotypical female characters from fictional scenes of the 1950s. Later, she created large-format color photographs, which explored topics such as fashion photography, fairytale characters, horror scenes and society ladies. The Goetz Collection has extensive work groups from nearly all phases of Sherman’s artistic career. With approximately 60 works, the retrospective, which was designed in close collaboration with the artist and is presented in the Gallery Building, provides an excellent overview of her entire work.
