We are delighted to host the first presentation of ARTIST ROOMS Georg Baselitz.

Baselitz is an important post war German artist and his work has never been seen in Leicester before.

The display will generate a dialogue with our German Expressionist collection, currently undergoing a major redisplay that will formally open with the Baselitz exhibition.

Baselitz’s work has a complex relationship to the legacies of German Expressionism and this pairing of exhibitions will give a unique opportunity to explore this aspect of his work.

At the heart of the exhibition will be a collaborative learning environment that will have a programof work exploring the performative aspects of Baselitz’s oeuvre and persona.

ARTIST ROOMS On Tour is a partnership with Arts Council England and the Art Fund, making available the ARTIST ROOMS collection of international modern and contemporary art to galleries throughout the UK. ARTIST ROOMS is jointly owned by Tate and the National Galleries of Scotland and was established through The d’Offay Donation in 2008, with the assistance of the National Heritage Memorial Fund, the Art Fund, and the Scottish and British Governments.
