For the first time ever the Museum Ludwig will present the works of this important American Pop artist. The exhibition follows the central aspect of ‘painting as immersion,’ as the artist himself calls it, while offering a wide–ranging overview of James Rosenquist’s work. The collage-like paintings from the 1960s, which clearly reflect Rosenquist’s background as a painter of enormous billboards on Times Square, will be shown along with large-scale biographically motivated paintings from the 1970s. This will be the first major museum exhibition of the artist’s work since his death earlier this year. Along with works from the museum’s own collection and archive materials – some of which have not been previously exhibited – the exhibition features generous loans from James Rosenquist himself, MoMA, the Guggenheim Museum and the Moderna Museet. Find out more about the James Rosenquist exhibition from the Museum Ludwig’s website.
