Anselm Kiefer (1945-)
Published to coincide with a exhibition at the NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale and a long-term installation at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, this is the first survey of one of the world’s largest collections of works by Anselm Kiefer.
The Hall and Hall Art Foundation collections include major Kiefer artist books, works on paper, paintings, sculptures, and large-scale installations from the late 1960s to the present day—many of which have never before been reproduced. Among the earlier treasures are Kiefer’s artist’s books, which are reproduced here in unprecedented depth and which contain in their rough directness so much of the lyricism with which he approaches scale and material complexity.
The Hall Art Foundation was founded in 2007 and makes available postwar and contemporary art works from its own collection and that of Andrew and Christine Hall. The Hall has locations in Reading, Vermont, at MassMoCA in North Adams, MA, at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, and at the Schloss Derneburg in Germany.
