Rosa Stern Space @ Living Art
The pop-up exhibition Living Art provides space for art to present living art and living with art. Serendipity allows us to welcome the Rosa Stern Space with an exhibition in the exhibition (about an exhibition)!
At one of the few art events this summer we met a co-initiator of the exhibition Drawing Restrict. A Growing Exhibition, which took place at Rosa Stern Space from 3.4. to 9.8.2020. The initiative gave artists an opportunity to exhibit despite the lock down and offered an international perspective on works and formats that artists have developed during the lock down practically in home-work – in view of closed studios and working spaces.
We had similar thoughts during our months in the home office. On the one hand, the financial burden for the artists resulting from cancelled exhibitions and fairs is definitely one aspect. On the other hand, we ourselves had acquired several works during the lock down that fit into our collection, and by acquiring them we were able to make a small contribution to bridging the shortfall. As a result, a cluster of works has found its way into our collection, which were either also created during the lock down, or were purchased during the time. The format and focus on form are structurally comparable to the contributions of Drawing Restrict.
In the “Artists’ Home Office” you will therefore find works from the Rosa Stern Space exhibition as well as works from our collection and corresponding loans. Some in a defined area that refers to the Rosa Stern Space – others that will always remind us in our collection of the lock down and how fortunate it is that art lives in defiance of all viruses and can continue to have a positive effect within the four walls of a private environment!
The works Rosa Stern Space is presenting can all be purchased, as well as the loans in the Living Art section; corresponding works from the collection are available in the respective series. We would be pleased if the support of art through acquisition also receives an impulse through this exhibition – after all, art wants to survive until the end of the pandemic!
