Joseph Beuys: Actions, Vitrines, Environments
UNITED STATES
HOUSTON  •  Menil Collection  •  Ongoing
 
The exhibition — curated by adjunct curator of Twentieth Century Art Mark Rosenthal and organized by The Menil Collection in collaboration with the Tate Modern, London — examines Beuys’s work primarily in three areas: performance works, largely dating to the 1960s; vitrines of the 1970s; and environments, for most of the 1980s. Assembling major works from Europe and the United States, the exhibition enables English-speaking audiences to better understand the post-World War II European sensibility. Recognizing Beuys’s contribution to sculpture (especially as he relates to such historical figures as Alberto Giacometti and such post-Minimalists as Eva Hesse) the show attempts to illuminate the contemporary phenomenon of installation art.

Joseph Beuys: Actions, Vitrines, Environments will be on view Feb. 4 – May 2, 2005 in London, where the exhibition is to be curated by Tate Modern senior curator Sean Rainbird.
