Galerie Marian Goodman opens an exhibition of works by Lothar Baumgarten

Galerie Marian Goodman is presenting an exhibition of works by Lothar Baumgarten (1944–2018). As an homage to one of the most influential German artists of his generation, the exhibition focuses on his early works including his iconic film Origin of the Night (Amazon Cosmos), a selection of photographs, a slide projection, as well as several sculptural installations. His famous floor piece America Señores Naturales, originally created for the German Pavilion at the 41st Venice Biennale in 1984, and for which he was awarded the Golden Lion prize, will be shown on the ground floor of the gallery. This historical piece, alongside the other works in the show, encompass the founding elements of Baumgarten’s conceptual practice; from the emphasis on the architectural and historical context, along with the preeminence of naming and typography, to references to his anthropological investigations.
