»Most important is the enthusiasm for a work.«
Dr. Günter Hackenberg

Häusler Contemporary München is pleased to continue its Collector’s Choice exhibition series with a show curated by Günter Hackenberg. Selected works by James Turrell, Hubert Kiecol, David Reed, Michael Venezia, Brigitte Kowanz, and other artists from our program enter into dialogue with works by Antonio Calderara that significantly influenced the beginnings of Günter Hackenberg’s collecting activities. He thus provides an exclusive insight into his collection and a broad overview on our gallery artists.

Under the title »Order and Color«, Häusler Contemporary München presents a special group exhibition: eight artists from our program have been chosen by Günter Hackenberg to enter into dialogue with the Italian master of »light and color painting« Antonio Calderara. A collector by persuasion and passion, Günter Hackenberg had occasionally bought art all along, but he was given his decisive impetus to actively start collecting around fifteen years ago by Antonio Calderara. By selecting Calderara works from his collection and works from our stocks by artists that he also collects, he now offers an inspiring impression of the multilayered activity of collecting art. Furthermore, his personal approach to art and artists, to our gallery and to the art market provides us with a widespread overview on our program.

Exhibited artists: Antonio Calderara | Hamish Fulton | Hubert Kiecol | Brigitte Kowanz | Gary Kuehn | Jürgen Partenheimr | David Reed | Keith Sonnier | James Turrell | Michael Venezia
