Francesco Clemente. Self-Portraits and Sirens

From 4 June 2020

The ALBERTINA Museum is devoting a comprehensive solo presentation to the Italian-American artist Francesco Clemente. It serves to mark the ALBERTINA Museum’s acquisition of the Jablonka Collection, which holds a great many of Clemente’s important works. A particular focus here is on Clemente’s self-portraits and the travels inextricably linked therewith, to be seen in works created all over the world. Impressions and experiences, stories and myths are likewise clearly visible in this artist’s output, alluding to their important role for him as a person in all of their many facets. Alongside works from the Jablonka Collection, several further key works from the ALBERTINA’s own holdings are also included as well as the Sirens, a series of oil paintings completed just recently.

On view from 4 June until 4 October 2020.
