The Kunstmuseum Bern is showing a major exhibition devoted to Katharina Grosse. The largeformat, vibrantly coloured paintings from the 1980s until the present clearly show the importance of the works on canvas in the artist’s oeuvre.

Colour is central to her artistic practice. She experiments with its physical presence, its sensoryand political potentials and its ability to embody movement. The exhibition enables to take a close look at 42 canvases, from her earliest works in the late 1980s to her most recent works.

The exhibition is organised by the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum (Washington University in St. Louis, USA) in cooperation with the Kunstmuseum Bern.
