Carpets from Morocco – Inspiring Modernism. The Jürgen Adam Collection
In the early 20th century, Moroccan carpets fascinated artists such as Wassily Kandinsky and Le Corbusier and today bring images of Mark Rothko or Cy Twombly to mind. In other words, an enquiry into the Islamically influenced culture of North Africa in general and carpets from Morocco in particular leads us to the roots of European avant-garde art.
The exhibition has been put back as a result of construction work that has become necessary at Pinakothek der Moderne. Planned for fall/winter 2013/14
Ausstellung | Munich | New dates: September 13, 2013 - January 6, 2014
