Martin Kippenberger

Selected Works

Martin Kippenberger's premature death in 1997 at the age of 43 brought to an end one of the most versatile, prolific and controversial careers of the post-war period. Kippenberger, whose output included paintings, sculptures, drawings, installations, photography, prints, and artist's books, has shown repeatedly in the United States since 1987. However, with the notable exception of his exhibition at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art in 1991, his work has not been presented in a major American museum to date. Recently, large-scale exhibitions in Europe have started the process of historicizing Kippenberger's unruly career and life.

The exhibition at Zwirner & Wirth will attempt to bring together key works from different periods in a variety of media, and will try, on a limited scale, to give a glimpse into the rich and diverse production of the artist. The emphasis in this exhibition will be placed on paintings, sculpture and photographs while a concurrent exhibition at David Zwirner Gallery will present works on paper, including the well-known 'Hotel' drawings.
