|The 1960s in Hanover
Artists, Galleries and Street Art
2 December 2007 – 30 March 2008
Opening: Sunday, 2 December 2007, 11.15 am
This exhibition follows the lively developments that occurred in Hanover’s
art world mid-20th century, from the first exhibition that Werner Schmalenbach
organised to re-discover Kurt Schwitters at the Kestner-Society in 1956
to Niki de Saint Phalle’s public installation of her “Nanas” in 1974.
The exhibition will include a selection of about 100 works: paintings, sculptures, and works on paper realised by internationally recognised artists who exhibited in Hanover in the 1960s. A 200 page-catalogue featuring numerous illustrations will accompany the exhibition.
This exhibition is kindly supported by the Niedersächsische Lottostiftung.
Together with NDR Kultur, the Sprengel Museum Hannover will be holding a reading, featuring Henning Rischbieter in the museum’s auditorium at 6.30pm on 4 December, 2007.
