HALF A POUND OF ART 2017
The exhibition HALF A POUND OF ART 2017 took place from 10th of March until 21st of April 2017. The opening day was on 9th of March 2017.
Considering the Coliseum in Rome, Michaelangelo's David or the artworks of American abstract expressionists such as Pollock or Rothko, art history tells us that the size of an artwork has often stated it's success. Along the lines of “bigger is better”, smaller in a sort more aesthetic works are overshadowed by their monumental competitors. But their are good reasons why delicacies are always small. Not only by challenging our viewing habits, small sized objects are able to pool the spectator's attention, but also the high artistic and technical quality is often so exquisite that it would get lost in a major realisation. The idea of the exhibition HALF A POUND OF ART is to show exceptional pieces of art in a dimension of approximately 50 x 50 cm, which can easily stick with the Big Boys.
Participating artists: Abigail Goldman from Washington, Alina Grasmann from Munich, Astrid Köhler from Munich, Björn Griesbach from Hannover, Chris Leib from California, Kazuhiro Hori from Japan, Luk Frese from Munich, Marc Gleason from California, Roos van der Vliet from Amsterdam and many others.
