Celebrating 20 Years of Neptunstrasse 42 | Part II

Sol LeWitt – Wall Drawing
Dan Flavin,   Donald Judd,   Robert Mangold,   Robert Ryman,  Richard Tuttle

Twenty of the forty-four years of our exhibition activities have now played out in the same premises at Neptunstrasse 42. This is an occasion to be commemorated with a sequence of exhibitions. The dialog between the intrinsic characteristics and architectural conditions of our location has provided us and the artists of the gallery with unforeseeably rich and inspiring possibilities. The exhibitions show the profile of the gallery in close correlation with the spaces that gave this profile its visibility. Works to be featured are by Dan Flavin, Donald Judd, Sol LeWitt, Robert Mangold, Robert Ryman and Richard Tuttle.

The opening exhibition in 1993 was a very special event. The work group by Dan Flavin that illuminated the gallery spaces bears the dedication “For the Vernas on opening anew.” We are delighted to once again have the opportunity to show one of these works.

Three wall drawings by Sol LeWitt in 2001, 2004 and 2009 each delivered a powerful experience. Art that combines permanence and ephemerality and causes the here and now to appear especially important and valuable. The installation of a wall drawing for the current show constitutes a key accent.

Since 1993, the gallery has hosted solo exhibitions by the following artists: Forrest Bess, James Bishop, Antonio Calderara, Andreas Christen, Joseph Egan, Dan Flavin, Richard Francisco, Donald Judd, Sol LeWitt, Robert Mangold, Brice Marden, Agnes Martin, Rita McBride, Ree Morton, Giulio Paolini, Sylvia Plimack Mangold, David Rabinowitch, Glen Rubsamen, Robert Ryman, Fred Sandback, Myron Stout, Richard Tuttle, Robert Wilson, Jerry Zeniuk.
