Katharina Grosse: Is It You?

From March 1, 2020 — June 28, 2020

German artist Katharina Grosse’s exuberant large-scale, in-situ paintings explore how and where a painted image can appear in our lives. Often painted directly onto and across architectural structures and objects or into landscapes, her extraordinary, colorful works invite visitors to engage with painting on both a visual and a physical level. 

For this exhibition at the BMA, the internationally acclaimed artist presents five recent paintings and creates a new site-related environment, Is It You? The immersive installation transforms the central gallery in the Contemporary Wing by suspending spraypainted cloth from the ceiling, extending it across the floor, and creating an enveloping “room” with undulating walls. 

For visitors with mobility concerns, please see a Visitor Services Associate at the Box Office in the East Lobby. 

The presentation of paintings closes June 28, 2020; the installation Is It You? remains on view through January 3, 2021.

Curated by Virginia Anderson, Curator of American Art
