SITE Santa Fe: Exhibitions
In December 2000, a group of five recent graduates of the prestigious Leipzig Art Academy organized a small exhibition of their works in Leipzig in former East Germany. Unsurprisingly, the exhibition attracted no notice from the international contemporary art community. From that humble beginning, the â€œNew Leipzig Schoolâ€ has expanded to a dozen artists and grown to be an international phenomenon.
Went to see this exhibit on Friday and two painters in particular are amazing. Here is Bretter by David Schnell:
and Container by Tim Eitel:
The paintings look wonderful in the large and tall spaces of the Site Santa Fe building. If you are going to be in Sante Fe sometime soon, I highly recommend a visit.
