What connects black and white? What lies between them? And: How can you make this join visible? At this year’s abc, Helga Maria Klosterfelde will present a new edition based on three works by the American conceptual artist, Matt Mullican. A photo series, a film and two series of screen printed playing cards represent not only the meeting point of the two colourless colours, but also Mullican’s search for nothingness. The works were created when Mullican was a student of John Baldessari at the Californian Institute of Arts and are the starting point of the development of his language of images, symbols and text that Mullican uses today.
Matt Mullican, born in 1951 in Santa Monica, is a painter and conceptual artist who belongs to ‘The Pictures Generation’. His works have been exhibited internationally at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York), Museum of Modern Art (New York), Museum of Contemporary Art (Los Angeles), Haus der Kunst (München) and in the Neuen Nationalgalerie (Berlin).
Since 1997 H.M. Klosterfelde Edition has produced a total of 8 editions and multiples with the artist. Furthermore, the gallery published a catalogue raisonné of Matt Mullican’s editions and multiples in 2013.
