Sam Porritt at Museum Haus Konstruktiv, Zürich, CH

Sam Porritt exhibits in 'Works on Paper - Papierarbeiten aus der Sammlung' at Museum Haus Konstruktiv, Zürich, CH until 16 January 2022.

"Many representatives of constructive-concrete art have worked with paper in addition to their painterly work on canvas and their sculptural work with granite, brass, Plexiglas and other materials. Max Bill, Richard Paul Lohse, Karl Gerstner and Gottfried Honegger, for example, have helped shape modern Swiss graphics through the innovative design of advertising posters, advertisements, books and company brochures and helped it to gain international renown. And also for their free artistic work, some constructive-concrete working artists dealt intensively with the challenges and possibilities of graphics and with the application of different printing techniques.

In the Museum Haus Konstruktiv, graphic art has seldom been brought into focus so far. The exhibition Works on Paper - works on paper from the collection closes this gap. A selection of printed products such as lithographs, copperplate engravings and serigraphs is presented. In addition, there are selected works from the collections on paper, also by today's artists. Graphics, drawings, sketches, drafts, gouache, collages and photography create an associative interplay of powerful settings, fine nuances and unexpected accents.

On the entire third floor of the museum, a diverse, cross-generational insight into the work of constructive-concrete and conceptual artists * on and with paper opens up." - Translated from DE
