'ZERO' exhibition to open at the Guggenheim this October

'ZERO' exhibition to open at the Guggenheim this October
29 Aug 2014

The artist communities Zero and ZERO will be going under the spotlight at an upcoming New York exhibition.

Perhaps confusing to those who are not art fans, the first Zero refers to an experimental group of artists in Germany, active from 1957 to 1966, according to the Guggenheim Museum, where the exhibition will be held.  

The second, capped-up version, was a global artist netwowrk, who also wanted to change art post Second World War.

ZERO: Countdown to Tomorrow, 1950s–60s is set to open at the Guggenheim towards the beginning of October, and is billed as the first time a large, US museum show has focussed on the stories of these two organisations.

The display will be in the rotunda as well as a gallery beside it, between October 10th this year and January 7th next year, and is set to include more than 180 artworks.

Among them are paintings, installations and more, while archive items will also be on show.

The show looks at art, publications, live events and exhibitions involved in the ZERO network's history.

Otto Piene and Heinz Mack, both artists who lived in Düsseldorf, started Zero in 1957, and the ZERO network grew from this over time.

The first thing people will look at in the show is an exploration of Vision in Motion–Motion in Vision, an exhibition in Antwerp in the late 50s that impacted artists belonging to ZERO.

The new exhibition includes work by over 40 artists, representing ten different countries, who were involved in the Zero network.

The Guggenheim is open every day apart from Thursday, usually from 10am to 5.45pm, but closing later than usual on a Saturday.ADNFCR-408-ID-801745272-ADNFCR
