BRITISH POP ART

A wealth of masterpieces from the Heinz Beck Collection Special Guest: Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

27.01.2019 bis 12.05.2019

 

England is considered to have been the cradle of Pop Art and produced numerous unusual positions on the phenomenon of the then truly revolutionary new art movement. In addition to motifs from everyday life, it is above all the idea that everyone is able to possess art. Copious masterpieces were created through the medium of printmaking, circulation art and multiples.

 

Düsseldorf lawyer Heinz Beck, whose collection is housed in the Wilhelm Hack Museum in Ludwigshafen, has gathered an outstanding collection of works from this period. His preference for reproduced work reflects the idea of a democratisation of art that went down in history with the catchphrase of art for all. For the first time, LUDWIGGALERIE Schloss Oberhausen presents a selection of British Pop Art from this unique collection along with its special and individual traits.

ANNE TEACHES MARY TO READ – THE CULT OF ANNE AROUND 1500

The Instruction of Mary from the Peter and Irene Ludwig Collection in cooperation with the Suermondt-Ludwig-Museum Aachen

10.02.2019 bis 12.05.2019

 

The starting point for the iconographic exhibition Anne Teaches Mary to Read – the Cult of Anne around 1500 is a highly qualitative and unique French stone sculpture dating from the mid-15th century belonging to the Peter and Irene Ludwig Collection. This sculpture was on permanent loan to the Suermondt-Ludwig-Museum from 1994 and became the property of the City of Aachen in 2011 through the legacy of Irene Ludwig. It depicts how the enthroned Anne teaches the little Maria standing next to her to read, a pictorial theme that developed in the context of the adoration of Anne. The subject appeared in manuscripts as early as the 13th and early 14th centuries, gaining increasing attention in the late Middle Ages and the early modern period with the increased popularity of the veneration of Anne. It was only in the Baroque period however that the theme gained general popularity which lasted until the 19th century. In the period around 1500, when the cult of Anna reached its zenith, the teaching of Mary was still a rare pictorial theme compared to the much more popular and frequent depiction of the Virgin and Child with Saint Anne.

 

The exhibition focuses on the sculpture from the Ludwig Collection, which has hitherto been regarded as isolated. Other teachings of Mary are grouped around this figure, the later life of the adult Mary is illuminated and other important motifs from the veneration of Anne are shown.

OB-ART 2019

Der Arbeitskreis Oberhausener Künstler stellt aus

10.03.2019 bis 02.06.2019

 

„Wer interessieren will, muss provozieren.“

 

Einige der 42 Mitglieder des Arbeitskreises Oberhausener Künstler, die mit ihren Werken bei der Ausstellung „OB-ART 2019“ in der LUDWIGGALERIE Schloss Oberhausen vertreten sind, haben sich dieses Motto auf die Fahnen geschrieben.

 

Ob nun der augenzwinkernde Verweis auf das Autokennzeichen der Stadt oder die parallel im Großen Schloss stattfindende „BRITISH POP ART“ Ausstellung – viele Wege führen die in Oberhausen und der näheren Umgebung arbeitenden Schöpfer von Malerei, Fotografie, Installationen und Skulpturen, digital oder dreidimensional, zur „OB-ART 2019“ und sie lassen Inspiration Wirklichkeit werden.

 

Da wird der Brexit thematisiert oder der rücksichtslose Umgang mit unserer Erde. Der Spagat zwischen Kunst und Kommerz wird persifliert sowie das Kohle machen mit der Kohle, aber auch Privates und Abstraktes. Es finden sich immer wieder neue Formen und Farben, die die Netzhaut der Besucher kitzeln und das Hirn stimulieren.
