The Nationalgalerie presents in cooperation with the Museum of Modern Art New York (MoMA) a unique range of Marden’s work at Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart starting June 12th 2007.

This retrospective of the artist Brice Marden is an unprecedented gathering of his work, with more than fifty paintings and an equal number of drawings, organized chronologically, drawn from all phases of the artist’s career.

Two new large-scale paintings exhibited for the first time are included. The gradual, deliberate evolution of the artist’s work becomes evident, as well as the constant exploration of light, colour, and surface at every turn. The work of the first twenty years, characterized by luminous monochrome panels, which first won the artist acclaim, is now seen in balance with the celebrated work of the past twenty years. In the mid-1980s Marden shifted to calligraphic gestures embedded in shimmering grounds before moving to heightened colour in the past decade.
