"MATTA - Fictions" at the Museum Frieder Burda
Until the 02th June 2013, the Museum Frieder Burda in Baden-Baden is presenting the exhibition " MATTA - Fictions ".
Roberto Matta (1911–2002) is one of the most prominent painters of the 20th century, and his work is included in the collections of museums worldwide. The artist, who was born in Chile, had a close dialogue with Surrealists such as Salvador Dalí, André Breton, and Marcel Duchamp, with whom he began exhibiting his work in 1938. Trained as an architect, Matta developed his idea of the relationship between space and human beings in the Paris studio of Le Corbusier. He created fictitious spaces in his paintings whose elements of scientific imagery invoke emotional experiences. In 1940, when Matta was living in exile in New York, he anticipated important developments of Abstract Expressionism.
The monumental paintings with their spherical colors and forms are accommodated by Richard Meier’s calm and clear architecture, which provides Matta’s pictures with the space they require.
The exhibition, which was developed in collaboration with the Bucerius Kunst Forum, Hamburg, throws new light on Matta’s oeuvre and demonstrates its striking topicality for contemporary painting
