Spot on

The title SPOT ON refers to a museum kunst palast exhibition series for which several project rooms are set up anew at six-month intervals. In line with the museum’s liveliness and openness the SPOT ON programme goes beyond being restricted to most recent art or individual genres, with the rooms accommodating presentations of selected work groups from the museum’s own collection.

The project rooms also introduce and facilitate discussion of important new acquisitions, as well as featuring smaller exhibitions of artists who live in Düsseldorf or have a particular connection with the city.

Vera Lutter’s preferred medium is the Camera Obscura, which on occasion can take up the size of entire rooms. Her black and white architectural or landscape photographs are unique. Using the negative image and long exposure, the location is transformed and the visual process becomes almost tangible. On the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the Kunststiftung NRW the New York based artist developed new works for the collection of Museum Kunstpalast.

Megert is conceiving a room based on a mural comprising 60 quadrangular mirrors, which are mounted in different angles and reflect a mobile of circular mirrors. In addition the artist presents a work in the museum’s courtyard, consisting of six large-format mirrors presented in an ordinary container.

Theodor Mintrop, who was born into a family of farmers at Gut Barkhoven near Werden in 1814, didn’t study at the Academy of Art Düsseldorf until the age of 30. His pictures in the late Renaissance style found broad appreciation, as did his idiosyncratic drawings. Today a large part of his graphic legacy is kept at Museum Kunstpalast; a selection commemorates the artist’s 200th birthday.

The exhibition shows recently restored “archaeologically complete” works from the Glasmuseum Hentrich, predominantly from a collection of medieval and early modern glasses acquired in 2011. The artistic value of the glasses is illustrated by their juxtaposition with modern works of art.
