Frankfurter Kunstverein presents a group exhibition of internationally emerging young artists from the Rhein-Main region.
As an institutional platform for art trends and issues of the future, Frankfurter Kunstverein periodically presents young artists rooted in the local art scene.
„Our task as Kunstverein among others is to support young emerging artists connected to Frankfurt. What distinguishes us from other cities is our great artistic potential. The aim of the exhibition is to render Frankfurt as a cultural centre including Städelschule, Hochschule für Gestaltung in Offenbach and other renowned universities visible within the national art scene.” (Franziska Nori)
The concept of the exhibition envisages the participating artists’ realization of extensive, locally specific presentations in an institutional dimension, which will afford their works a strong effective power and make them visible and perceptible to a broad audience.
To demonstrate the diversity of today’s artistic practices and to draw a picture of the contemporary art scene, the exhibition presents works ranging from painting, video and photography to sculpture and installation. In their entirely different approaches regarding both form and content, the artists come across the common themes of the body and physicality. They all seem to question the significance of the individual’s physical presence in a time that increasingly relocates social interaction to the digital realm. At the same time the positions are conjoined by their investigation of habitual image concepts as well as the experimentation with alternative view points and perspectives.
Special thanks go to Dr. Marschner Stiftung, whose generous sponsorship made this exhibition possible.
Participating artists: Jonas Englert, Adam Fearon, Hannah Levy, Aleksandar Radan, David Schiesser, YRD.Works.
