LANDESMUSEUM NIEDERÖSTERREICH / AUSTRIA
NEAR DISTANCE - NAHE FERNE
21 NOVEMBER 2015 - 3 APRIL 2016
OPENING: 20 NOVEMBER 2015
In a certain way following the exhibition and publication “Because Art is Created”, which comprehensively documents
places of artistic work in Lower Austria, the view now turns to a series of Lower Austrian artists who have been living
and working outside of Lower Austria for a long time and have realized an impressive and successful body of work.
Among others, works by Uli Aigner (Berlin), Kersten Chmelka (Berlin), Inge Dick (Mondsee), Michael Lechner (Paris),
Erwin Redl (Bowling Green, Ohio) and Paul Z. Rotterdam (North Blenheim, upstate New York) are on show.
In a contrasting way the exhibition is further extended by the inclusion of current works by artists who have recently
moved their studios to Lower Austria, such as Jakob Gasteiger, Josef Kern, Alois Mosbacher, Frenzi Rinkling as well
as Thomas Reinhold, and who have been living and working here since then.
