New York maakt zich op voor ZERO
From October 10, 2014 to January 7, the Guggenheim Museum in New York shows "ZERO: Countdown to Tomorrow, 1950s-60s". The exhibition is the first large-scale historical survey in the United States dedicated to the German artists' group Zero (1957–66) founded by Heinz Mack and Otto Piene and joined in 1961 by Günther Uecker, and ZERO, an international network of like-minded artists from Europe, Japan, and North and South America—including Lucio Fontana, Yves Klein, Yayoi Kusama, Piero Manzoni, Almir Mavignier, jan Schoonhoven,Jan Henderikse, Armando and Jesús Rafael Soto—who shared the group’s aspiration to transform and redefine art in the aftermath of World War II.
Featuring more than 40 artists from 10 countries, the exhibition explores the experimental practices developed by this extensive ZERO network of artists, whose work anticipated aspects of Land art, Minimalism, and Conceptual art.
Also in New York, on September 28, the exhibition "The Art of Zero. Heinz Mack, Otto Piene, Günther Uecker and Friends" opens at the Neuberger Museum of Art. It shows a condensed selection of the ZERO oeuvre.
