“Albert Oehlen: Home and Garden”

At the New Museum

June 10–September 6, 2015

Third and Fourth Floors

This summer, the New Museum will present the first major New York exhibition of the work of German artist Albert Oehlen (b. 1954). Surveying the past thirty years of his career and demonstrating his immeasurable influence on contemporary painting, the exhibition will include paintings, drawings, and prints from several of his most important bodies of work. “Albert Oehlen: Home and Garden” will include a selection of the artist’s early self-portraits, his “Computer Paintings” and “Switch Paintings” from the 1990s, and more recent works fusing appropriated advertising signage and aggressive brushstrokes. Rather than following a chronological path through Oehlen’s prodigious output, the exhibition is divided into sections devoted to works evoking domestic spaces and the natural environment. Exploring contrasts between interior and exterior, nature and culture, and irony and sincerity, the exhibition demonstrates Oehlen’s commitment to continually expanding the language of painting in surprising ways. The exhibition is curated by Massimiliano Gioni, Artistic Director, and Gary Carrion-Murayari, Kraus Family Curator, with Natalie Bell, Assistant Curator.
