Major Exhibition of Austrian Artist Maria Lassnig’s Work Opens at MoMA PS1 This Sunday, March 9th
Maria Lassnig occupied a singular role within the artistic movements of Vienna in the 1950s and 1960s, which included a loose association of writers, filmmakers, and visual artists at the vanguard of postwar Austrian culture. While Lassnig frequently engaged in lively exchanges with her counterparts, her work, which champions painting, draws from extensive subject matter, and defies categorization. In 1970, Lassnig had her first solo show in New York, but it wasn’t until 1993 with the exhibition Broken Mirrors, organized by Kaspar König and Hans Ulrich Obrist for the Vienna Festwochen and Deichtorhallen Hamburg, that she became celebrated internationally for a wide range of work, a rare genius for color, and a mastery of the subjective; Lassnig has devised a language to communicate memory. Though she was not granted immediate recognition, a difficulty attendant to many female artists, she persisted with unyielding dedication. In 1980, Lasnig became the first female painting professor at the Academy of Applied Arts in Vienna and the German-speaking world.

'Maria Lassnig: The Location of Pictures' at ARTBOOK @ MoMA PS1

'Maria Lassnig: The Location of Pictures' at ARTBOOK @ MoMA PS1This Sunday, MoMA PS1 opens the most significant survey of Austrian painter Maria Lassnig ever mounted in the United States. Featuring more than 50 paintings from across the artist's seven decade career plus watercolors and filmic works, the exhibition is one this year's top insider NYC art events. A living legend and an artist's artist, Lassnig is strangely underpublished; all three of her existing monographs are virtually impossible to come by. So stop by ARTBOOK @ MoMA PS1, where we have rare copies of her most recent monograph, The Location of Pictures, from which the featured image, "Figure with Blue Neck" (1961), is reproduced.
