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 “New Leipzig School” 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.
