Gunther Forg: "A Fragile Beauty" will survey the prolific and provocative career of the late artist Gunther Forg (1952-2013). Forg was closely associated with the Cologne scene of the 1980s, a group of irreverent artists who challenged the traditions of painting.

This exhibition, the first major museum presentation of his work in the United States since 1989, will bring renewed attention to Forg’s work by examining his legacy in relation to key issues of the 20th century, including postwar nostalgia and loss and the utopianism of high modernism.

Gunther Forg: "A Fragile Beauty" is co-organized with the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, and will be on view exclusively in the U.S. at the DMA.
