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 exhibits – particularly from the Baroque period – but shall also reveal new perspectives through confrontations with contemporary art. This first presentation of Anne and Wolfgang Titze’s extensive collection of international contemporary art marks the start of this rich encounter. The Austro-French collection ranges from key works of Minimalism, Conceptual and post-Conceptual art, and Group ZERO to fundamental perspectives in contemporary art. 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 Marina Abramovi, Carl Andre, Matthew Barney, Georg Baselitz, Bernd und Hilla Becher, Larry Bell, Thomas Demand, Olafur Eliasson, Dan Flavin, Lucio Fontana, Barnaby Furnas, Rodney Graham, Andreas Gursky, Wade Guyton, Donald Judd, Anish Kapoor, Anselm Kiefer, Yayoi Kusama, Sol LeWitt, Sarah Lucas, Agnes Martin, John McCracken, Mario Merz, Robert Morris, Gabriel Orozco, Paola Pivi, Seth Price, Sterling Ruby, Robert Ryman, Fred Sandback, Sean Scully, Frank Stella, Rudolf Stingel, Wolfgang Tillmans, Günther Uecker, Kelly Walker, Jeff Wall, Rebecca Warren, Lawrence Weiner, Rachel Whiteread, Christopher Wool, and Erwin Wurm.
