Exhibition — 6 Apr until 11 Aug 2019

The Stedelijk Museum presents the first retrospective of Maria Lassnig (1919 - 2014) in the Netherlands.

The Austrian artist is internationally regarded as one of the twentieth century’s foremost artistic figures although is almost unknown in the Netherlands. Lassnig became best known for her Körperbewusstseinsbilder (body awareness paintings), in which she depicted the sensations experienced by her body and in this way defined her relationship to the world. In addition to her paintings and drawings, the show will also feature many of her films and sculptures, and never-before-seen works. The exhibition Maria Lassnig – Ways of Being was produced in collaboration with the Albertina Museum in Vienna, where it will be on display from 6 September to 1 December 2019. 

The exhibition Maria Lassnig – Ways of Being is supported by the Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds and the International Collector Circle and Curator Circle of the Stedelijk Museum Fonds.
The Exhibition is organised by the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam in collaboration with The Albertina Museum, Vienna.
