New Walk Museum & Art Gallery are pleased to host the first presentation of ARTIST ROOMS Georg Baselitz. Baselitz is an important post war German artist and his work has never been seen in Leicester before.
The display will generate a dialogue with Leicester’s extraordinary German Expressionist collection, currently undergoing a major redisplay that will formally open with the Baselitz exhibition. Baselitz’s work has a complex relationship to the legacies of German Expressionism and this pairing of exhibitions will give a unique opportunity to explore this aspect of his work. At the heart of the exhibition will be a collaborative learning environment that will have a program of work exploring the performative aspects of Baselitz’s oeuvre and persona.
