I’m still missing London so lets share some information about cool things happening at the Tate and pretend we can head out the door for a short walk to the museum.
The Tate Museum in London has an exhibition starting that will display artwork with items that interact with your non visual senses. Visitors will be asked about their reactions and a research report will be created. Here is a short video about the exhibition.
The tate is also mapping all their artwork. you can click on the map and see the artwork that portrays the location shown on the map. This is a great way to get people involved with the artwork and to bring a participatory element to a visitor’s experience.
Now, lets get closer to home.
In Frankfurt, Frankfurt’s Städel Museum, has opened an exhibition of 80s artwork. (Have you seen the 80s exhibition at the Haus der Kunst?) The Frankfurt museum wants you to be educated on the art in the exhibition before you visit the museum and are offering a digital tutorial. Here is the link to the tutorial.
Even Closer To Home
How about going to the Pinakothek der Moderne. The museum has has two exhibition which you might want to visit. The first is “Degenerate Art – Nazi Art” Collecting after ’45. The exhibition starting in May and goes on until January 2016.
The second exhibition is of the artwork of Karl Blossfeldt which includes photographs, collages and designs.
Who is Karl Blossfeldt?
Karl Blossfeldt was a German photographer, sculptor, teacher, and artist who worked in Berlin, Germany. He is best known for his close-up photographs of plants and living things, published in 1929 as,Urformen der Kunst. He was inspired, as was his father, by nature and the way in which plants grow. He believed that ‘the plant must be valued as a totally artistic and architectural structure. For more information visit his wiki page.
