Maria Lassnig

From 6. September 2019

Maria Lassnig (1919–2014) stands alongside Louise Bourgeois, Joan Mitchell, and Agnes Martin as one of the 20th century’s most important women artists. It was early on that Lassnig placed her own body at the centre of her art, long before body awareness, body language, and relations between men and women became central themes of the international avant-garde. The artist put how she perceived and sensed her own self to the surface in a way that was at once humorous and serious, yearning and merciless. In doing so, she visualised not what she saw, but rather how she felt. On the occasion of her 100th birthday, the ALBERTINA Museum is honouring Maria Lassnig with a great retrospective.

The exhibition is on view from 6 September 2019 until 26 January 2020.
