Von Bartha celebrates its 50th anniversary with the group exhibition “The Backward Glance can be a Glimpse into the Future,” centred on the gallery’s 50-year history. Featuring outstanding works from the past 100 years, the exhibition offers reflection on this milestone moment in the gallery’s history and looks ahead to the future. On view will be works by 45 contemporary and modern leading artists, including Anna Dickinson, Terry Haggerty, Sarah Oppenheimer, Camille Greaser, Yves Laloy and Jean Tinguely. In the exhibition, viewers will find works that seem incredibly contemporary, despite being made much easier, alongside recently created works of which many have benefited from and developed the potentials of classical modernism.
Additionally, to mark its 50th anniversary, Von Bartha will produce a publication entitled Est. 1970, highlighting the gallery’s most important moments from 1970 to the present day.
