Heiner Kielholz

Bündner Kunstmuseum, June 7 to August 31, 2014

Around 1970 Heiner Kielholz belonged to the young Swiss avant-garde. However, he soon withdrew from the bustling art world. Subsequently his path led him on many journeys mainly to Eastern and Southern Europe, to Greece and to Turkey. In his rare exhibitions he offers insight into his artistic oeuvre, which constantly oscillates on the border between the outer and inner world. At the Bündner Kunstmuseum work groups of the last 30 years are at the centre. Heiner Kielholz created these in the Southern Alps where has been living and working for some time.

Thrown back on his immediate surroundings and his own closest living space, Heiner Kielholz has reached a state of great concentration, but also of surprising freedom and independence. In the exhibition works are united from the Veltlin, the Val Camonica or the Puschlav, images in which the artist condenses experiences resulting from his journeys into other cultural areas. The artist searches for different possibilities of finding pictorial equivalents for visible reality. A view into the world becomes the subject of his painting. However, he sometimes also places abstract models face to face with the world of things. Recently his travels find an echo in a continuously more radical withdrawal and a conscious limitation in the choice of motifs in restrained still lifes and interiors. Thereby Heiner Kielholz resists any fixed placing. He deliberately puts himself on the outside and yet again and again hits directly into the heart of life and art.

GUIDELINES
The Art of Drawing from Arnold Böcklin to Richard Tuttle

Bündner Kunstmuseum, June 7 to August 31, 2014

A sheet of paper: a surface, four margins. With the simplest of means, with lines, forms and structures artists try to capture these components. Reflecting on pictorial means is one of the basic features of conceptual and minimalist art around 1970. This led to a re-evaluation of drawing, by giving drawing particular significance in contemporary artistic practice on the one hand and on the other by giving drawing of other epochs a fresh appraisal. The collection presented here was put together against this background. It started with works of American art from the 1960s and 1970s, which is still one of its main focuses. This caused new areas of interest to open up: Other works from other contexts were added: Single works as well as extensive collections. The selection is less guided by art historical considerations but more by visual moments. These do not replace historical contexts but appear as complementary to them. From this perspective surprising connections ensue beyond time and space. The openness towards the specific pictorial means determining each individual drawing becomes the leitmotiv and offers the observing and cognizant eye new nourishment. Prejudiced assessments are put into perspective and new points of view open up. The works shown are among others by Arnold Böcklin, Ferdinand Hodler, Félix Vallotton, René Auberjonois, Lucio Fontana, Eva Hesse, Sol LeWitt, Donald Judd, James Bishop, Richard Tuttle.

Giro Annen

Bündner Kunstmuseum, June 7 to August 2014

Since the mid 1970s Giro Annen (*1957 in Chur) who lives in Bern has been taking photographs of the same waterfall. What started as a possibility of expression for an inner feeling, has in the meantime given way to a more markedly documentary approach. In the mid 1980s Giro Annen starts to pay less attention to photography in favour of sculpture. At the end of the 1990s Giro Annen again takes up the topic of the waterfall. In three rooms of the Bündner Kunstmuseum he presents a cross section of his black and white photographs and a new waterfall work in the form of a slide projection specifically conceived for the exhibition as well as three concrete sculptures.

The Bündner Kunstmuseum as Guest in the Villa Garbald and at the Museo Ciäsa Granda

The Fondazione Garbald celebrates a major anniversary in 2014. For this reason two exhibitions were set up in the Bergell in close cooperation with the Bündner Kunstmuseum Chur that are dedicated to the cosmos Garbald: In the Ciäsa Granda in Stampa and in the Villa Garbald in Castasegna. Opening of both exhibitions is on May 31, 2014.

Silvia Andrea – Andrea Garbald. Arte e Poesia
Exhibition Museo Ciäsa Granda, Stampa, June 1 to October 20, 2014

Under the pseudonym Silvia Andrea, Johanna Garbald-Gredig (1840-1935) was active as a writer. With her historical novels and stories about the history of Graubünden as well as with delicate little essays she attracted attention across the border of her native canton. Her son, Andrea Garbald, was a photographer and an artist. He remained attached to his home the Bergell all his life, acted as chronicler of the valley and took portraits as well as picture postcards and landscape photographs. Parallel to the commissioned work he created an independent photographic oeuvre and developed a visual aesthetic that was unique for his time. Starting point of the exhibition in the Ciäsa Granda is the book by Silvia Andrea about the Bergell, which is accompanied by Andrea Garbald’s photographs. Literature and art come together most beautifully in the encounter between mother and son. If up to now mainly the big names of the artist family Giacometti established the reputation of the valley as a special place for art, then Silvia Andrea and Andrea Garbald, thanks to this exhibition, now also join in and give us new insight into life and work in the Bergell.

Katalin Deér. Eco Echo Garbald
Art Installation Villa Garbald, Castasegna, June 1 to June 28, 2015

For almost 10 years the Bündner Kunsmuseum uses the Villa Garbald as outpost. The rooms do not serve as a gallery but serve rather as a stimulus for art. In this anniversary year (150 years Villa Garbald, 10 years Denklabor Garbald) such a requirement is being particularly responded to. For the anniversary installation the artist Katalin Deér (*1965) takes a look at Andrea Garbald’s work and shows it afresh from a different perspective. With her camera she has done pictorial research and has taken pictures of the Garbald photographs in the archive and in the exhibition space. What has come to light is the photographic view: She shows us how Andrea Garbald saw things: How the people, the animals, the objects, the houses are both objects and subjects. And how his view on the nearest surroundings has always been a look into the distance as well. Thus Andrea Garbald’s entire world manifests itself in the selection chosen by Katalin Deér for this location. How he experienced it and set it into pictures – and how his view of things is felt by her as an artist of today.

The anniversary exhibitions on occasion of 150 years Villa Garbald/10 years Denklabor Garbald were organised by the Bündner Kunstmuseum Chur. They were created in close cooperation with the Società Culturale/PGI Bregaglia as well as the Fondazione Garbald.
