Jörg Immendorff: I Wanted to Become An Artist

This exhibition of drawings, paintings, and objects from 1965 to the present will be Immendorff’s first solo museum show in America. It brings his densely encoded tableaux of postwar Germany and his acute feel for late modernism’s internal contradictions to public attention, in a moment when many of them will resonate against the stresses generated by the current critical reconsideration of the ideologies of Right and Left and the apparent dichotomies between Dada inflected idea-art and the discursive use of traditional graphic and painterly mediums.
