Location: Winter Palace and 21er Haus
In the summer of 2014 the Titze collection is celebrating its exhibition premiere at two of the Belvedere’s museums: the 21er Haus and the Winter Palace. Prince Eugene of Savoy’s former residence, which was just recently opened to the public, is not only to be a magnificent setting for historical, particularly baroque exhibits, but combinations with contemporary art shall also reveal new perspectives. Launching this exciting juxtaposition, the Belvedere has the honor of staging this first presentation of Anne and Wolfgang Titze’s wide-ranging collection of international contemporary art.
The Austro-French collection includes key works of Minimal art, such as Dan Flavin’s first work using neon tubes, a floor piece by Carl Andre, specific wall objects by Donald Judd, a felt piece by Robert Morris, modular grids by Sol LeWitt, and reliefs by Fred Sandback. Pioneers of Minimalism like Agnes Martin, Frank Stella, and Robert Ryman are represented as are their European contemporaries Piero Manzoni, Giulio Paolini, and Lucio Fontana. Influential protagonists of German post-war art, such as Gerhard Richter, Georg Baselitz, Günther Uecker, and Anselm Kiefer meet shooting stars of the American art scene including Sterling Ruby, Wade Guyton, Kelley Walker, Seth Price, and Christopher Wool. World-renowned artists such as Olafur Eliasson, Matthew Barney, Anish Kapoor, Yayoi Kusama, Sarah Lucas, Gabriel Orozco, and Jeff Wall demonstrate the variety of the globalized art world. Displayed in a scintillating interaction with the historical interior of the inner-city palace and the airy atmosphere of the 21er Haus, visitors can appreciate both the most recent trends and their origins in painting, sculpture, graphic art, and photography at exhibitions that promise a memorable encounter with an exceptional collection.
The parallel exhibitions at these two venues will include works by Carl Andre, Matthew Barney, Georg Baselitz, Larry Bell, John Chamberlain, Richard Deacon, Thomas Demand, Nathalie Djurberg, Olafur Eliasson, Dan Flavin, Lucio Fontana, Barnaby Furnas, Anthony Gormley, Rodney Graham, Andreas Gursky, Wade Guyton, Donald Judd, Anish Kapoor, Anselm Kiefer, Yayoi Kusama, Sol LeWitt, Robert Longo, Sarah Lucas, Robert Mangold, Piero Manzoni, Christian Marclay, Agnes Martin, John McCracken, Mario Merz, Robert Morris, Gabriel Orozco, Paola Pivi, Seth Price, Gerhard Richter, Sterling Ruby, Robert Ryman, Fred Sandback, Sean Scully, Tony Smith, Frank Stella, Rudolf Stingel, Wolfgang Tillmans, Günther Uecker, Kelly Walker, Jeff Wall, Rebecca Warren, Lawrence Weiner, Rachel Whiteread, Christopher Williams, Christopher Wool, Erwin Wurm, and Heimo Zobernig.
