Fri Art Kunsthalle Fribourg presents the first retrospective of undiscovered American artist Gene Beery (*1937). On view until June 30, the exhibition features 40 works spanning over 50 years.

About

The majority of the works are on loan from the personal collection of minimalist artist Sol LeWitt, the LeWitt Collection, USA. Accompanying the retrospective is the artist’s very first monograph, “Gene Beery,” offering an in-depth exploration into his life’s work.

Despite his art historical significance and his contribution to reconsiderations of the picture plane, Beery remains largely unknown. The retrospective allows the fluctuating periods of Beery’s oeuvre to be in dialogue, for the first time in the same space. The works on view range from early anti-art paintings (1960-1963), figurative works (1965-1975), the artist-book series (1976-1985) and the burgeoning contemporary period (1986-2016).
