A Passion for Drawing.
The Guerlain Collection from the Centre Pompidou Paris

Until 26 January 2020

Ever since the 1990s, Florence and Daniel Guerlain’s interest has been focused on contemporary drawing, and the two have by now accumulated an extensive collection of works by internationally known artists. They are also the initiators and sponsors of the Prix de dessin, which is conferred annually by a jury.

2013 saw this couple donate part of their collection—totaling 1,200 drawings—to the Centre Pompidou in Paris. And now, as the first Central European museum to do so, the Albertina Museum is providing a glimpse into the Guerlains’ activities as collectors by showing a selection of highlights from these holdings.

Artists: Mark Dion, Marcel Dzama, Marcel van Eeden, Catharina van Eetvelde, Jana Gunstheimer, Erik van Lieshout, Robert Longo, David Nash, Cornelia Parker, Joyce Pensato, Chloe Piene, Pavel Pepperstein, Javier Pérez, Anne-Marie Schneider, Kiki Smith, Nedko Solakov, Renie Spoelstra, Aya Takano, Sandra Vásquez de la Horra, Jorinde Voigt

On view from 11 October 2019 until 26 January 2020.

A Passion for Drawing. Die Sammlung Guerlain aus dem Centre Pompidou

The show at ALBERTINA presents 20 artistic positions that are among the main protagonists in the current drawing discourse. The works are partly abstract and conceptual, move narratively between reality and fiction, relate to mythology, culture or art history, to people and their identity, are critical of society and deal with categorizations and systematizations.

Artists: Mark Dion, Marcel Dzama, Marcel van Eeden, Catharina van Eetvelde, Jana Gunstheimer, Erik van Lieshout, Robert Longo, David Nash, Cornelia Parker, Joyce Pensato, Chloe Piene, Pavel Pepperstein, Javier Pérez, Anne-Marie Schneider, Kiki Smith, Nedko Solakov, Renie Spoelstra, Aya Takano, Sandra Vásquez de la Horra, Jorinde Voigt
