Kunstmuseum Bern—Sculptural Accents in the Lucchini Exhibition

with works by Giacometti, de Bruyckere, Josephsohn, and others

September 23, 2016 to January 08, 2017

In the fall of 2016, the Kunstmuseum Bern is dedicating a retrospective exhibition entitled “Quel que rimane,” in English “What Remains,” to the seventy-five-year-old painter from Ticino, Cesare Lucchini. Its intention is to situate his abstract-expressive painting within the international context. Lucchini’s oeuvre is characterized by gestural approaches to figuration. In his paintings, implied signs referring to existentialist questions often appear and nonetheless always remain enigmatic. In loose reference to Lucchini’s painting, curator Rainer Lawicki has set a few sculptural accents in the exhibition—works by artists of significance for Lucchini or with a topical closeness to his work: Alberto Giacometti, Berlinde de Bruyckere, Bernhard Luginbühl, Eduardo Chillida, Robert Müller, Germaine Richier, and Hans Josephsohn.
