Katharina Grosse

Is it you?

Baltimore Museum of Art, USA

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 will present five recent paintings and create a new site-related environment, Is It You? The expansive installation will transform the central gallery in the Contemporary Wing by partially suspending cloth from the ceiling, creating an enveloping “room” with undulating walls. Grosse will then spray paint onto the fabric, allowing the paint colors and the shape of the fabric to combine to form a vibrant and immersive experience for visitors.

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