South London Gallery
Katharina Grosse and musician Stefan Schneider present the UK premiere of Tiergarten, a performance based upon material from their recent collaborative LP named after the park in central Berlin.

Gesten in der Malerei von Roy Lichtenstein bis Katharina Grosse
Through August 18, 2019
Kunst Museum Winterthur, Switzerland
In 1965 Roy Lichtenstein created his famous Brushstrokes and in doing so highlighted the fundamental elements of the image, such as the appearance of the colors and the pigment, the color fields and their limits, and not least the application of paint in the form of a gesture. This exhibition aims to explore the sheer range of gestures in contemporary painting. Work by Katharina Grosse, Roy Lichtenstein, and David Reed is included.

Jackson Pollock | Katharina Grosse
Through February 23, 2020
Museum of Fine Arts, Boston
Jackson Pollock’s Mural (1943) is recognized as one of the pivotal achievements of the artist’s career, the moment when he left figuration behind, expanded the scale of his work, and started to develop his signature drip technique. The MFA has commissioned German artist Katharina Grosse to respond to this work, in an effort to demonstrate how the two artists have respectively transformed painting through their innovative techniques and approaches to massive scale.
