- Mel Bochner
The US-American artist Mel Bochner (born in 1940) is considered one of the founders of Conceptual Art. He is thus part of an artist generation that radically broke with painting's dominant position in the early 1960s. Bochner realized this by introducing language. In his more recent works, Bochner increasingly deals with examining this once-maligned medium. Here, his own conceptual pictorial language offers him insight into new possibilities of painting. The exhibition reveals the connection between Bochner's use of language and color in the 1960s and 1970s and his works of the past fifteen years. It involves media ranging from small early sculptures and drawings to installations, murals, photography, and paintings.
The exhibition is organized by the Whitechapel Gallery, London in collaboration with Haus der Kunst and Museu de Serralves, Porto.
