Stiftung Skulpturenpark Köln announces Chus Martínez as curator for KölnSkulptur #9
Chus Martínez, will curate the KölnSkulptur #9 in the Skulpturenpark Köln (Sculpture Park Cologne) for its 20th anniversary, opening 15 October 2017.
The Skulpturenpark Köln was founded in 1997 through the private initiative of Michael and Eleonore Stoffel. It has since realized over one hundred and fifty new pieces by major artists ranging from Rosemarie Trockel, Louise Bourgeois, Jenny Holzer, Isa Genzken, Dan Graham, Fischli and Weiss, George Condo and many others for the exhibition series KölnSkulptur.
The Park’s commitment to sculpture, combined with their biennial invitation to curators to rethink this open air art space anew, has produced site that is unique. The KölnSkulptur exhibitions have garnered a national and international reputation, not only because of the importance of the pieces exhibited, but also because of the relationships these form with the land: the context provides an uncommon opportunity to consider an artistic language capable of expressing how form and scale and a relationship with nature may help us to reflect on the future of life and culture being one.
The 15th of October 2017 will see the opening of KölnSkulptur #9, showing the ninth exhibition of outdoor sculptures at Skulpturenpark Köln and celebrating its 20th anniversary of the Park.
