Location: White Cube Bermondsey
April 28, 2017 - June 18, 2017
White Cube is pleased to present an exhibition of work by Jürgen Partenheimer at Bermondsey. This exhibition, his first in London, includes paintings, sculpture, unique ceramics and works on paper dating from 1975 to 2017.
Partenheimer’s abstract works are characterised by their variable, multidimensional language of forms, lightness of touch, striking use of colour and poetic approach. Following studies in fine art, art history and philosophy, he first showed at Richard Demarco Gallery, Edinburgh in 1979 and then gained international recognition following his participation in the biennials of Paris (1980), São Paulo (1981) and Venice (1986). He was the first artist-curator at Kunsthalle Düsseldorf from 1977 to 80 and the founding director of the Institute of Phenomenology.
