In The Land Of The Giants
21 September – 21 December 2013
Galerie Barbara Thumm is very proud and pleased to present the exhibition In The Land Of The Giants – which was first shown at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam – in the gallery in Berlin. The exhibition was held in conjunction with the Ludwig Museum in Cologne, which showed paintings and drawings since the 1960s.
In The Land Of The Giants presents a new series of paintings and works on paper by Jo Baer (b. Seattle, 1929), one of the most renowned contemporary artists today. Since the fifties she has followed a radical path, was one of the groundbreaking forces of the New York Minimalism of the sixties to which she turned her back in the early seventies and moved on to rural Irland where she developed what she called her “radical figuration”.
