Häusler Contemporary opens second solo exhibition of Michael Venezia’s work

Häusler Contemporary Zürich is presenting its second solo exhibition of Michael Venezia. With several works that have not been seen for a long time, the show again reveals his fundamental contribution to the renovation of painting after 1960. At the same time, an exhibition at Kunstverein Heilbronn also honors Venezia’s impact, as well as a new extensive publication published by Snoeck that was realized in cooperation with Häusler Contemporary. This second solo show of Michael Venezia (*1935, New York, US) draws a line from his cutting-edge pictorial inventions from around 1970 to recent works, that stand out in contemporary art’s variety by their concision and freshness. From his early years, we show «Stripe Paintings» that examine the independency of picture carrier and paint application. A main focus of the exhibition is on the impressive historical «Spray Paintings»
