In Conversation

Richard Calvocoressi, Max Hollein, and Katy Siegel on Georg Baselitz

Join Gagosian for a conversation about Georg Baselitz with Max Hollein, Marina Kellen French Director at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Katy Siegel, Eugene V. and Clare E. Thaw Endowed Chair at Stony Brook University, New York, and senior curator at the Baltimore Museum of Art; and Richard Calvocoressi, art historian and director at Gagosian, London. In celebration of the forthcoming monograph on Baselitz written by Calvocoressi and published by Thames and Hudson, the trio will look at the artist’s prolific career. They will highlight the exhibitions Springtime at Gagosian, New York, and Archinto at the Museo di Palazzo Grimani, Venice, both opening in May 2021, and the recent gift by the artist and his wife, Elke Baselitz, of six landmark paintings to the Met, which are on view at the museum in Pivotal Turn through July 2021. Hollein curated the major traveling exhibition Georg Baselitz: The Heroes (2016–17) and authored the accompanying catalogue on this seminal body of work. Siegel wrote the insightful essay “Double Positive: Not for Not against Not Nein—Georg Baselitz,” published in the exhibition catalogue for Georg Baselitz: Back Then, in Between, and Today (2014–15) at Haus der Kunst, Munich.
