S.U. Sakıp Sabancı Museum in Istanbul is preparing to host the timeless works by leading artist of German modernism, Heinz Mack, with a major exhibition titled MACK. Just Light and Colour. The exhibition, which encompasses the artist’s prolific 60-year career, is opening on February 18.

MACK. Just Light and Colour, made possible with the main sponsorship of Tahincioğlu, focuses on the significant oeuvre of German artist Heinz Mack, who is notably among the founders of the mid-20th century avant-garde art network, the ZERO movement. The exhibition, encompassing the artist's formative earlier works that informed the revolutionary philosophy of the ZERO movement, which were followed by extensive explorations into the realm of Land Art, brings together paintings, monumental sculptures and kinetic works produced throughout the artist’s career. Among the exhibited works are open-air installations Mack designed during his artistic explorations in the Sahara Desert regarding light and colour in nature, reliefs and sculptures produced in a myriad of materials, as well as the artist’s large canvases titled "Chromatic Constellations," drawings and pastels.

Heinz Mack’s timeless works delineating the many facets of light and colour will be open to visit February 18 through July 17, 2016 at Sakıp Sabancı Museum galleries, with an artist talk taking place in the attendance of Heinz Mack and noted art critic and curator Beral Madra on the opening day of the exhibition, February 18. Heinz Mack’s first solo exhibition in Istanbul, where the civilisations of East and West have bequeathed a priceless heritage over thousands of years, will be accompanied by a rich program of conferences, education programs, workshops, as well as a comprehensive exhibition catalogue suitable for both scholars and the general public.
