“Lights off! Night in Picture books” – exhibition at the Rosenheim Municipal Gallery

From March 24 to June 10, 2018 a very special exhibition can once again be seen at the Rosenheim Municipal Gallery (Städtische Galerie Rosenheim), where a series of illustration-in-picturebooks-themed events have been organized over the past several years.

How many different facets does the night unite under its mantle? And how much light can be found even in darkness? Frequently there is something sinister, something frightening about it, with its ghosts and its nightmares – yet it is also a source of inspiration and imagination, especially to artists.

Night has always been an important and complex theme in Quint Buchholz’s pictures. Thus it comes as no surprise that this collective exhibition will feature a large number of evening and night paintings by him, co-author of Dorothée Kreusch-Jacob’s “Sun, Moon and Evening Star – the Great Collection of Lullabies” (Hanser, 2017). The oldest picture to be shown was created over thirty years ago – the newest ones are from 2017.

Besides pictures by Quint Buchholz the exhibition, curated by literary critic and author Christine Knödler, will also feature works by Tatjana Hauptmann, Regina Kehn, Ole Könnecke, Mattias de Leeuw, Sophia Martineck, Dorothée de Monfreid, Nele Palmtag, Henriette Sauvant, Einar Turkowski, Julie Völk, Henning Wagenbreth and Mehrdad Zaeri.

More information will be posted here soon, and can also be found on the Rosenheim Municipal Gallery’s website.
