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 Winterpalais. 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 honour 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.
