Andreas Gursky and Melancholy in German Art



ANDREAS GURSKY AND MELANCHOLY IN GERMAN ART
Now showing until 30 April 2017
Gallery 11
Free admission

This display unveils the major new acquisition Kirchentag, 2013, by contemporary German photographer Andreas Gursky. Kirchentag captures an endless mass of people in a makeshift campground, attending a festival of religion and world affairs.

Many of Gurskys photographs reflect on the human condition in the era of globalisation. This display draws on the Gallerys collection to contextualize Gurskys imagery within a tradition of German art that expresses melancholy and explores existential concerns.

Artists exhibited include Albrecht Durer, Max Klinger, Georg Baselitz and Joseph Beuys.
