Tony Cragg at the Pinakothek der Moderne - Staatliche Graphische Sammlung Munich
The Pinakothek der Moderne - Staatliche Graphische Sammlung Munich is showing a selection of Tony Cragg's drawings and sculptures in an extensive exhibition.
The block of drawings, which has grown over decades and often surprises us with unusual motifs, is a source of inspiration of the first order for Tony Cragg and allows to gain a deep insight into his sculptural thinking.
With the exhibition the Staatliche Graphische Sammlung München addresses the question as to the importance of drawing in the 21st century as a driving force within the visual arts and examines its role as an existential form of expression of the human intellect and its creative potency. By presenting drawing and sculpture together our exhibition succeeds in providing unexpected insights that deepen our understanding of Tony Cragg’s artistic œuvre. There is hardly another contemporary artist whose two arts cross-fertilise in such a symbiotic way.
The catalogue for the exhibition Tony Cragg. Sticks, Stigma, Stones and Stamen will be published on 13 March.
