White Cube Bermondsey
144-152 Bermondsey St, London SE1 3TQ, United Kingdom
April 27-July 3, 2016
White Cube Bermondsey is pleased to present a major solo exhibition of new paintings, drawings, prints and sculpture by Georg Baselitz. This exhibition draws together two familiar strands within the artist’s practice: portraiture and the process of ‘remixing’, whereby images are repeated and reinterpreted over time using different techniques and mediums. Baselitz took inspiration from Otto Dix’s candid portrait of his elderly parents sitting side by side on a worn-out sofa (The Artists’s Parents, 1924)
Georg Baselitz is a German painter whose style has been described as neo-expressionist and postmodern. He often focuses on the power of subject and the vibrancy of colors.
White Cube Bermondsey was opened in 2011 and is the largest of the White Cube galleries. The building, which dates from the 1970s, was renovated and designed by London and Berlin-based architects Casper Mueller Kneer and includes three major exhibition spaces as well as private viewing rooms, office space, a warehouse, an auditorium and a bookshop.
