First U.S. Museum Exhibition of Work by Günther Förg in Nearly Three Decades Will Debut at the Dallas Museum of Art in October 2018

The Dallas Museum of Art (DMA) announced its presentation of the most comprehensive survey to date for renowned German artist Günther Förg (1952-2013), opening on October 21, 2018 and on view through January 27, 2019. The first American museum exhibition dedicated to the artist in nearly three decades, Günther Förg: A Fragile Beauty, brings together over 40 years of  the artist’s multimedia practice – including work on paper, photography, sculpture, and rarely-exhibited late-career paintings –  to provide new insight on the practice and enduring influence of this extraordinary and complex artist.

Organized in collaboration with the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam and their curator of photography Hripsimé Visser, in close dialogue with the artist’s estate, Günther Förg: A Fragile Beauty builds on both institutions’ histories with the artist, with each having staged seminal exhibitions of his work in 1992 and 1995 respectively. The exhibition includes major loans from private collections and notable German institutions such as the Städel Museum, Frankfurt and the Staatliche Graphische Sammlung, Munich.
