PRESS RELEASE

 

Renowned internationally as a musician, saxophonist and clarinetist Peter Brötzmann has maintained a parallel life as a visual artist. His first exhibitions took place in Europe during the early 1960s, when he also worked with Nam June Paik and participated in Fluxus events. His efforts as a painter and fabricator of objects have been featured in periodic exhibitions, including a 2005 retrospective in Remscheid, Germany, and a show of very early works in Chicago two years prior. This is the first major survey of Brötzmann’s recent work in the U.S., featuring large format works on canvas and small scale assemblages, as well as an assortment of older pieces.
