Nineties Oehlen

At momuk in Vienna, Adam Hochdörfer recently curated Malerei, a retrospective exhibition of the "Post-non-representational" painting that Albert Oehlen has been inventing over several decades. Today we peek at the fruits of the 90s. Yesterday we peeked at the fruits of the 80s.

New work by Albert Oehlen appeared on this rolling screen here in 2011 following a small exhibition at Galerie Max Hetzler in Berlin. The Max Hetzler paintings were excluded from the large Vienna retrospective, which instead is encouraging a good stare into the past of one hugely persistent German painter now on the verge of turning 60.
