Rita Ackermann. Mama ’19’

20.02.2020 - 11.04.2020 Opening 20.02.2020 18:00 - 20:00

Please join us for the opening reception of ‘Rita Ackermann. Mama ’19,’ an exhibition of new paintings by Hungarian born, New York-based artist Rita Ackermann. Ackermann’s Mama series deploy figurative line drawings only to be obscured by expanses of color alike. Evoking the foundations of ancestry, Ackermann’s figures and motifs rise to the surface only to dissolve and reappear elsewhere again. Her study is one of relationships, between both figuration and abstraction and to the enigmatic balance of personal and collective narratives within.
