A TREE IS A TREE IS A TREE: The Tree in the Art of the 20th and 21st Century
6th November 2015–9th January 2016
Düsseldorf / Germany
Our daily contact with trees, the many stories that surround them as well as their powerful symbolism, have always inspired artists to choose the tree as a motif.
Despite thematically related references, this exhibition will surprise with an exciting composition of works. Their variety in technique and expression enriches and inspires the beholder, transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary.
The exhibition comprises paintings, sculptures, photographs and videos of 54 artists fom the 20th and 21st centuries with a particular focus on contemporary art.
On the occasion of the exhibition a comprehensive catalogue with texts by Herwig Guratzsch and Kirsten Nordahl has been published.
