Body Awareness


For more than six decades, the Austrian artist Maria Lassnig has been painting through what she calls an exploration of the body. Now in her latest exhibit (promoted in photo above exhibit), at the Lenbachhaus Kunstbau, she highlights much of her post war abstraction images, but with a special focus on the past 10 years. Leveraging her time living in some of the art capitals of the world – Vienna, Paris, New York - Lassnig shows images that emerge from inner body sensations. Now, over the age of 90, she is revealing over 40 previously unseen works – including many large format images. The show runs through May 30.
