Hermann Nitsch Opens September 9th


MARC STRAUS is pleased to present the second solo exhibition of Viennese artist Hermann Nitsch at the gallery. To celebrate the occasion Nitsch concluded a landmark 75th Painting Action, comprising 12 paintings dedicated to Marc and Livia Straus.

Co-founder of the Viennese Actionism Movement and the creator of the Das Orgien Mysterien Theater, Hermann Nitsch is one of the most influential artists today having steadfastly devoted his many years to a singular, uncompromising vision. From the outset, Nitsch’s vision has been anchored in the Wagnerian ideal of a complete work of art, a Gesamtkunstwerk, which indissolubly combines painting, theater, drawing, music, print-making, philosophy and life itself.

This exhibition focuses on the multi-dimensional aspect of his work, and for the first time in New York, Nitsch will perform a special organ recital.

Exhibition on view September 9th to October 15th, 2017 at Marc Straus Gallery New York
