John Armleder in “Surfaces and Pattern” at Daimler Art Collection, Berlin
4 April 2014 – 2 November 2014
Conceptual and Applied III: Surfaces and Pattern
Over the past ten years, the Daimler Art Collection has focused on the field of constructive, conceptual and minimalistic tendencies from the 1920s to the present day. Of particular interest were artists whose work straddles free and applied art disciplines. Minimalism and Applied I (2007) introduced fine artists whose art work crosses over into architecture, into product design and graphic design. In contrast with this, the second part of the series (2010) focused on a dialogue between outstanding early exponents of architecture and furniture design with international contemporary art. The third part of the exhibition series is all about presenting artists, designers and architects from the 1950s to 1970s beside contemporary artists whose aesthetic concepts exist in the gray area between art and design, with a specific focus on surfaces, materials, and pattern.
