Franz Erhard Walther: Work as Action
Date: Saturday, October 2nd 2010Sunday, February 13th 2011
Venue: Dia:Beacon, 3 Beekman Street

Time to get your art history on. German sculptor and conceptual artist, Franz Erhard Walther was amongst the first to emphasize process and materials over form, which is one of many reasons to make the trip out to Dia. This exhibition promises plenty of Handlungsstücke (Action Pieces) from the early 1960’s as well as 1.Werksatz (First Work Set), a piece comprising 58 fabric elements calling attention to the body’s material form.
