Katharina Grosse’s art blurs the lines between painting and scenery, as her giant installations cover entire exhibit halls and place visitors right inside intense worlds of color and surface. A new exhibit at Museum Kunstpalast features her spectacular installations and oversized paintings from September 30, 2014 – February 1, 2015.

A redefinition of the relationship between color and painting surface.

Professor at Düsseldorf’s world-renowned Art Academy (Kunstakademie) and Berlin-based artist, Katharina Grosse has been creating art that explodes in color and size since the mid 1990s. Grosse is known for over-sized paintings and huge art installations. This new exhibit “Inside the Speaker,” from September 30, 2014 – February 1, 2015, features many of her works and is as much an invitation to explore Grosse’s fantastic colorful installations as it is a redefinition of the relationship between color and painting surface.

One entire hall in the exhibit will feature a landscape of about 8,000 square feet for visitors to walk on, created from massive amounts of earth, paint, and textile. Another exhibit hall will feature a selection of oversized paintings, up to 380 square feet, in which Grosse explores new expressions in painting.
