In cooperation with the Joan Mitchell Foundation in New York, Kunsthaus Bregenz and Museum Ludwig present an extensive survey of the artist, whose painting is seen by art historians in the tradition of abstract expressionism and the orbit of the New York School.
The focus of the show lies on painting, from early works dating back to the 1950s to the late work from the latter years of her life. A large section of the show is also devoted to the first comprehensive presentation of archive material.
The catalogue documents the artist’s work and life, presenting a substantial biography of the painter. The format of the catalogue borrows from an early publication of Joan Mitchell.
In 2015 the publication received an award as one of Austria’s most beautifully designed books.
