Galerie A – August 2020

Galerie A, August 2020
4 weeks / 4 presentations
Galerie A is organising four special exhibitions in August. These are historic presentations with works many of which have not been publicly displayed before.
THIS WAY BROUWN – the photos
August 3-10

In 1971 This Way Brouwn 25-2-61/26-2-61 was published by Verlag Gebr. König. However, the first This Way Brouwn works originated in 1964; years before this publication. Igno Cuypers was present at the time and kept photographic journal.
Günter Brus – Die Einladung
August 10-17

Between 1967 and 2015 the Wiener Aktionist, illustrator and writer Günter Brus designed almost all of the invitations for his Aktionen and exhibitions himself. He designed no less than 15 different flyers for a Direct Art Happening in 1967. They were printed in small editions via a spirit duplication process. Brus drew most of his designs using pencils, after which offset prints were made. One of the largest collections of Brus’ invitations, no less than a hundred and forty works, can be seen at the Hemonylaan 6a starting on August 10.
