“New Frankfurt Internationals” is a special exhibition project initiated in 2010 by Frankfurter Kunstverein as a recurrent format. The idea behind it is to focus on the major artistic potential innate in the region and to present artists who have lived and/or have studied in Frankfurt and the Rhine/Main region and who are in part already counted among the “new internationals” in the art world.
Focusing on art from Frankfurt and the region
The 2nd edition of “New Frankfurt Internationals” is organized by Frankfurter Kunstverein (FKV) and Nassauischer Kunstverein Wiesbaden (NKV) thus expanding the presentation out from the city of Frankfurt into the region. Entitled “Solid Signs”, paintings, sculptures, photographs, drawings, videos, installations and performances by 41 artists and artist groups will be on show at both venues. An array of works has been produced specially for the exhibition.
Solid Signs: Revisiting materials and artistic techniques
“New Frankfurt Internationals: Solid Signs” addresses the interest many artists have for some time now been showing in the physical presence artworks possess and in revitalizing traditional artistic techniques and materials. In particular, a younger generation of artists is increasingly focusing on pictorial means and the different forms of expression intrinsic to them. For these artists, the material properties have the same status as an artwork’s execution, presentation or substance.
The exhibition will be supplemented by an extensive accompanying program of discussions and performances; these will present many of the artistic positions involved in a variety of event formats.
“New Frankfurt Internationals: Solid Signs” is made possible and funded by the Kulturamt Frankfurt am Main and the Kulturfonds Frankfurt RheinMain.
