Lake Worth, FL – The Palm Beach Institute of Contemporary Art (PBICA) is pleased to announce first US solo museum show of Austrian artist Gunter Brus. The exhibition will open March 21, 2002 and continue through June 16, 2002. It will be shown in the mezzanine galleries. Sue Williams: a Fine Line, opening March 16, will occupy the ground floor galleries.

PBICA will exhibit extraordinary performance photographs from this artist’s early period and several drawings and paintings from the 1980′s until the present in which Brus explores personal and societal issues in an Expressionist-inspired style.

“Gunter Brus has influenced generations of performance artists to this present day” says PBICA Director and Curator of the exhibition, Michael Rush. “His work is echoed in Paul McCarthy, Chris Burden, Matthew Barney and many, many other contemporary artists. Brus was known for his ‘extreme’ bodily performances, but his work was also remarkably beautiful as the photographs in this exhibition make clear.”

A full color catalogue will accompany the exhibition with essays by Rush and Austrian art historian Johanna Schwanberg. The catalogue will be published in English and German.

The exhibition and museum programs of the Palm Beach ICA are generously supported by Robert M. and Mary Montgomery.
