Katharina Grosse: On the Edge of Something Else

Monday, January 23, 2023 | 11:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum, Video Gallery
Kemper Art Museum, St. Louis, MO 63112

The renowned contemporary artist Katharina Grosse, whose exhibition Katharina Grosse Studio Paintings, 1988–2022: Returns, Revisions, Inventions is on view this fall at the Kemper Art Museum, is known for large-scale artworks that explore and expand the physical properties, material presence, optical effects and aesthetic potentials of color and paint. She was interviewed by Marc-Christoph Wagner in August 2020 for the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Humlebæk, Denmark. In the resulting half-hour video, Grosse reflects on central elements of her work: color, place, and structures; social responsibility and the role of art; and the significance to her of having grown up in Germany in the 1960s and 1970s, under the dark shadow of its recent history.
