“In Dialogue with the Baroque”

“In Dialogue with the Baroque” – an exhibition of the Galerie Handwerk” at the Neues Schloss Schleißheim Featuring Jennifer Trask

The “Galerie Handwerk” by the “Handwerkskammer von München und Oberbayern” presents in the autumn 2013 as fifth guest show the exhibition “In Dialogue with the Baroque”. This project is presented in co-operation with the “Bayerische Verwaltung der staatlichen Schlösser, Gärten und Seen“. The curved line and its counter swing are a basic formal principle of the ornament of the Baroque and the Rococo – two époques of the history of art closely connected with Bavaria. The dynamic curves of these époques are today of great interest in the arts and crafts and are varied for different reasons.

The exhibition “In Dialogue with the Baroque“ is presented in the Neues Schloss Schleißheim. The idea of the dialogue becomes most clear by the context of the palace. The works by international artists and craftsmen can be compared directly with interiors and objects from the 18th century. The vis-à-vis shows the contemporary appeal of the historic styles and the richness of association of the formal language of the Baroque, its fantasy, and the beauty of its art of decoration as well as the continuation of baroque subjects like the pastoral and the still life. The feast for the eyes finds its ongoing sequel.

The exhibition is supported by the consulate general of the Netherlands, Munich and by the Neue Sammlung – The International Design Museum Munich.
