TERRY FOX

In Memoriam

2018-12-12 - 2019-03-01

To mark the 10th anniversary of TERRY FOXs death, we will be showing a small exhibition of original works (drawings, collages, objects), photos, texts and catalogs by the artist, who died in October 2008, in our rooms at Kaiserstraße 58 until 1 March 2019.

Since 1983, we have exhibited works by TERRY FOX in several exhibitions in our gallery and at fairs and have held several of his sound performances (the first one in 1983). This American sound and text poet was one of the silent stars of the international art scene. However, he has always made history, be it with his very early collaboration with Joseph Beuys, his entirely new installations (such as his playing on strained piano strings) or his influence on Fluxus and Body Art with well over 100 performances.

In numerous museums around the world (beginning as early as 1971 in the Museum of Modern Art, New York) his work could be seen in solo and group exhibitions. He was represented three times at documenta in Kassel.

The last museum tour - with numerous loans of our gallery - was from 2015 to 2017 in the Academy of Arts Berlin, the Musée des Beaux-Arts in Mons, Belgium, the Von der Heydt Museum Wuppertal and the Kunstmuseum Bern.

It is a real concern of ours, with the appreciation of a great artist and personal friend, to show some aspects of his work to as many interested people as possible.
