Katharina Grosse: Picture Park
15 July – 28 October 2007 Gallery 1.2, GoMA
German artist Katharina Grosse is one of the most exciting and innovative abstract painters working today. Painting with a spray gun, Grosse works in situ, responding to a space’s architecture and ambience by working directly on the walls, floor and ceiling. Having exhibited widely through the United States and Europe, ‘Picture Park’ is Grosse’s first major solo museum project in Australia. The artist has transformed GoMA’s long gallery into an extraordinary environment that confounds conventions of museum display and challenges our expectations of painting.
An exhibition catalogue is available for purchase from the Gallery Store or online.
