Sculptures from the Staatsgalerie Stuttgart
October 26, 2018 – January 20, 2019
Underlying the exhibition project Stuttgart Sichten (Viewing Stuttgart) are the highly topical questions of how museums deal with their collections today, how they can innovatively present them, and how to successfully balance traditional methods of art education with contemporary formats of presenting art to spark curiosity.
The Deichtorhallen Hamburg, still a relatively young exhibition venue but with many years of experience presenting a wide variety of private and public collections in major exhibitions, and the Staatsgalerie Stuttgart, with its 175-year tradition of collecting, have found a provocative response with the exhibition Stuttgart Sichten: a sculptural total work of art, an overarching presentation with sculptures as artistic material by the artist Florian Slotawa (*1972), which can also offer an overview of the development of sculpture across various periods.
The artist was given the opportunity to select works from the sculpture collection of the Staatsgalerie Stuttgart and to present them in a new light across 3,000 square meters of exhibition space at the Deichtorhallen from 26 October 2018 to 20 January 2018. The exhibition is a collaboration between the Deichtorhallen Hamburg and the Staatsgalerie Stuttgart.
