PRIVATEOFFSPACE freut sich eine spannende Auswahl an Positionen junger Malerei und Skulptur von Studenten und Absolventen der Städelschule und Akademie der Bildenden Künste Karlsruhe zu zeigen.
Willem de Kooning zeigte sich einst von einem Gemälde eines seiner Künstlerkollegen angetan, indem er seinen Eindruck mit “Pressing your face in wet grass” beschrieb.

Duration of the exhibition: April 7 until May 14, 2017

PRIVATEOFFSPACE is glad to present a group show with selected contemporary positions in painting and sculpture by students and graduates of Staedelschule and Academy of Arts Karlsruhe.
William De Kooning once likened a painting by a fellow artist to “Pressing your face in wet grass”.
