This edition of ArtLab @ The Lowe explores key artistic movements in nineteenth- and twentieth-century Germany and Austria. Visitors to the Lowe will have the unique opportunity to examine original works of art associated with German Symbolism, Austrian Expressionism, Surrealism, the New Objectivity movement, and German Fluxus. Exemplifying these critical periods are works by Germanic masters Max Klinger (1857-1920), Käthe Kollwitz (1867-1945), Erich Heckel (1883-1970), Oskar Kokoschka (1886-1980), Max Ernst (1891-1976), George Grosz (1893-1959), and Joseph Beuys (1921-86); all of which are drawn from the Lowe’s permanent collection, and all of which will be on view at the Museum from April 22, 2015 to April 10, 2016.
Envisioned as a model program for future museum studies courses at the University of Miami, ArtLab @ The Lowe brings together up to 15 students within the context of an upper-level Art History seminar.
This student-curated exhibition was supervised by Dr. Nathan Timpano, Assistant Professor of Art History, and was generously underwritten by Stella M. Holmes.
