MAK Center L.A., Schindler House

Arnulf Rainer is one of the most renowned contemporary Austrian artists. His paintings are characteristic of the expressionism and actionism of post-World War II Viennese art. Highly innovative and theatrical, Rainer’s work explores the causes and limitations of artistic expression, pushing methodology and subject matter to extreme states of subjective experience. Rainer himself created the poster designs for almost all his exhibitions, as well as for collaborative cultural projects such as theater productions. For each poster, he produced a variety of designs and graphic detailing that were eventually brought together in the production process. ”Arnulf Rainer. Overwritings” will provide an insight into this intense and concentrated working method. The artist’s loan of the original drawings and designs for his posters to the MAK has made it possible to juxtapose the designs and the printed posters, surveying different stages in the work of along his exhibition history. The original drawings will be acquired for the MAK Collection Contemporary Art.

Permanent Collection Renaissance Baroque Rococo

Artistic intervention: Franz Graf
The joint arrangement of precious glasses with valuable needle and bobbin lace in the Renaissance Baroque Rococo Collection on permanent display not only complies with aspects of art history, but also places these delicate materials in a visual-sensuous dialogue with each other that enhances and accentuates their aesthetic effect with striking clarity.
