Alex Katz – WhenSomeQuickThingBecomes-AbsolutelyVisible
The Kunsthalle Koidl will be presenting works by Alex Katz, a leading figure in contemporary American art. The exhibition highlights his unique aesthetic approach since the 1950s, how he broke away form the Pop Art movement to established his own visual language.
In portraiture and outdoor scenes, Katz reduces images to their barest essentials. Imitating instantaneity with a cool, monochromic finish. These paintings and serigraphs have never before been exhibited in Berlin.
