With the exhibition “abstract”, Galerie Haas Zurich is turning its attention to an area of visual art that has so far found little expression in its programme. Top-class works from different generations of European abstraction enter into a dialogue. Classics are mixed with representatives of recent modernism and works of contemporary abstract painting.
Jean Arp begins with two works from the 1930s. A special focus is on works from the 50s, 60s and 70s by artists such as Joan Mirò, Antoni Tapiès, Victor Vasarely, Ben Nicholson, Carol Rama and Emil Schumacher. The survey is concluded with a work by Bridget Riley from the 80s and three works by Gary Kuehn, Michael Conrads and Bernar Venet that introduce the 21st century.
