Neo Rauch is one of the best-known artists from the Leipzig school in Germany. His psychologically complex paintings have been widely collected and written about for more than twenty years. Neo Rauch: Aus dem Boden / From the Floor will be the first exhibition entirely devoted to his drawing in the United States. A collaboration between The Drawing Center and the Des Moines Art Center, the show will be presented first in Des Moines from September 27, 2018–January 6, 2019, with the catalogue published and distributed at that time. In Spring 2019, the exhibition will travel to The Drawing Center where it will be on view in the Main Gallery and Drawing Room for four months.
Co-organized by Brett Littman, former Executive Director of The Drawing Center and Jeff Fleming, Director of the Des Moines Art Center, Iowa, with Amber Harper, Assistant Curator.
