My Generation.
The Jablonka Collection

Until 21 February 2021

The Jablonka Collection is one of the most high-profile collections of US and German art of the 1980s. It encompasses works by important artists with whom Rafael Jablonka has worked, showing and collecting their works for years. Over decades, it has been his principle to consistently acquire several works from various creative phases of each artist.

For the first time, the art dealer, gallerist, and curator – who was born in 1952 ­– provides insights into his contemporary art collection at the ALBERTINA Museum with a focus on artists of his own generation. After Rafael Jablonka 2017 closed his Cologne gallery, he turned over his major private collection to the ALBERTINA Museum in 2019. About 110 selected works on two exhibition levels presents a representative view of these artists’ respective oeuvres in keeping with a one-artist-per-room concept: paintings, sculptures, and works on paper thus enabling visitors to experience the broad diversity all of the Jablonka Collection.

Featured Artists:

Miquel Barceló | Ross Bleckner | Francesco Clemente | Richard Deacon | Eric Fischl | Damien Hirst | Roni Horn | Mike Kelley | Sherrie Levine | Cady Noland | Thomas Schütte | Andreas Slominski | Philip Taaffe | Terry Winters

On view from 2 October 2020 until 21 February 2021.
