Inge Dick receives Austrian Art Award for Photography 2020
We are very pleased to announce that Inge Dick will has received the Austrian Art Award for Photography 2020. The Austrian Art Award is given to established artists for their extensive, internationally recognized body of work and is awarded annually. With her photo projects - for example with the large Polaroid cameras - or her innovative film projects, Inge Dick is one of the most unusual positions in contemporary experimental photography and film work.
We honor the work of the Austrian artist on the occasion of her 80th birthday in January 2021 with a comprehensive solo exhibition. On show from Jan. 15th to April 16th, 2021 will be works from Inge Dick's four-part cycle "jahres licht weiss" (“a year’s light white”) with new square colored film-stills. Looking back into her work, a large polaroid and a selection of her spatulated "white paintings" will be on display. Her new "golden paintings" are exhibited for the first time in Munich.
Exhibitions at the Museum für Konkrete Kunst und Design Ingolstadt, among others, are also planned for 2021.
