Peter Wechsler. Drawings

11 November 2016 – 22 January 2017

Peter Wechsler (b. 1951) grew up in Zurich and now lives in Vienna. He is one of a generation of non-figurative artists who, since the 1990s, have been opening up new and contemplative fields of expression for the medium of drawing as system and sensory experience, following on from minimal and conceptual art. Such artists address a fundamental question: how can the systematic deployment of the draughtsman’s means create spaces and structures that engage and challenge the viewer’s sensory perception? The exhibition reconstructs the cycle of impressive large-format pencil drawings (1994 – 2008) using ten key works. The Kunsthaus is also the first art museum to present a selection of recent, unframed ink brush drawings.
