FAVORTIES II - for sale
Vernissage: Wednesday, September 7, 2016 - 7:00pm
Duration of exhibition: September 8th - October 9, 2016
Independent of the succesful opening exhibtion „FAVORITES – not for sale,“ we would like to thank all collectors and friends of the gallery Beckers/Landau that have accompanied our alternating dialogue between art and design. For the exhibition „FAVORITES II – for sale,“ we have chosen works from the past few decades from artists and designers considered important protagonists of their time, as well as, up-and-coming positions developed based upon the hertiage of art history.
This exciting juxtaposition simultaneously underlines the challenge that both gallerists, through their continuous scrutinization and interaction with art and design, undertook.
Highlight of the exhibition FAVORITES II
During the examination of art from the 60ies, including ZERO, the gallery came across a spectacular find that we would like to present at the Season Opening.
While dissolving Otto Piene's Studio in Düsseldorf, his widow found "Supergouachen" - as called by Piene. The works had been forgotten for 40 years. A tape recording from an interview with Piene proves without a doubt that these works were created from the middle of the 70ies to the 80ies. Certificates from his widow, Elizabeth Goldring Piene, confirm the authenticity of the works. One of the fours works is signed and titled. Often, Piene would only sign a work after it was sold, a typical practice at the time.
Selection of presented positions: Jürgen Klauke, Christiane Feser, Lena Ditlmann, Hermann Göpfert, Otto Piene, Carlo Hauner & Martin Eisler, Tommi Parzinger, Yngve Ekström, Vittorio Nobili, Angelo Lelli, Preben Fabricius & Jorgen Kastholm, Martin Schlotz.

Film screening at the ATELIERFRANKFURT

Starting July 27, 2016 and for the first time in Europe, never before shown photo-prints from the series ‚1-2-3-4’ by Anton Corbijn will be exhibited under the title ‚#5’ at the Galerie Anita Beckers in Frankfurt am Main. The images, produced between 1972 – 2014, are exclusively of musicians, including David Bowie, Johnny Cash, Kurt Cobain, Nick Cave and Patti Smith. In order to show the complete comprehensive group of works, the gallery has been able to procure a second location at the studio and exhibition house ATELIERFRANKFURT.
In the past twenty-five years, Anton Corbijn has, in addition to his music photography, photographed every artist he had interest in from the worlds of film, painting, writing and modelling. Besides photography he has taken up film direction in a very successful way, having made four feature films (“Control,“ “The American,“ “A Most Wanted Man,“ and “Life“) in the last ten years.
Throughout his 40+ years career, Corbijn has helped to define the image of world famous bands and musicians such as U2, Depeche Mode, Metallica, Herbert Grönemeyer, Nick Cave and many more; as well as that of icons like Miles Davis, David Bowie, Gerhard Richter, and Clint Eastwood.
Following his work as a directior and due to the many exhibitions, most recently the retrospectives in 2015 at the Gemeentemuseum and Fotomuseum in The Hague as well as the C/O Berlin, Corbijn is never out of the spotlight of the international media. In 2011, he was awarded the Prince Bernhard Cultuurfonds Prijs, the highest cultural honor in the Netherlands, and in 2014, he received the Frankfurt Book Fair prize for the best literary adaptation of John le Carré's spy-thriller A Most Wanted Man.
At the opening on July 27th, Galerie Anita Beckers will show the first part of the exhibition in the Braubachstrasse 9, which will be changed out for different motifs from ’#5’ after three weeks, starting on August 16, 2016.
