The Graphic Work – Part Three


The Grafikstiftung Neo Rauch opens its third exhibition on May 24, 2014.

Since the establishment in 2012 the foundation expects its 10.000th visitor.

 

The third exhibition of the Grafikstiftung Neo Rauch (Foundation of graphic works) will open its doors on May 24, 2014 at 4 pm, „Neo Rauch. Das grafische Werk – Dritter Teil“, in the presence of Saxony-Anhalt’s prime minister, Dr. Reiner Haseloff. From May 25, 2014 until May 3, 2015, the Grafikstiftung will present selected works from its collection as well as new prints and drawings. Besides graphics the third part will show large works on paper. Two of them have been made in 2014 and will be presented to the public for the first time. Furthermore Neo Rauch’s sketches for the glass windows of the chapel of Saint Elizabeth at the Naumburger Dom from 2007, will be presented. These three works on paper will be provided for the period of this exhibition from Collection Faber-Castell.

The foundation was established in 2012 by the painter Neo Rauch, the city of Aschersleben and Gerd Harry Lybke and Kerstin Wahala from Galerie EIGEN + ART in Aschersleben, the hometown of the artist.
Two exhibitions with grafic works of the artist have been on display in the “Riegelbau” in the city’s Bestehornpark. The reason for the establishment of the foundation was a gift by the artist to his hometown:
On September 2010 Neo Rauch gave one copy of each graphic work of the previous editions to his hometown. Preservation, maintenance and presentation should be guaranteed by a foundation. Since the creation of the Grafikstiftung a copy of all further graphic works is included to the collection of the foundation.

The press appointment takes place at May 24, 2014, 2 pm at the Grafikstiftung. The press preview of the exhibition is scheduled for 1 pm. Please RSVP to:
