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.
