PROJECTS is a series of exhibitions within the Contemporary Art Society space at 59 Central Street that transform and use the architecture of the building, drawing into focus questions around modes of display and the encounter between contemporary art and architecture.
The Contemporary Art Society will present a selection of paintings and works on paper by Lothar Götz, designed to complement three major commissions by the artist which open in London over this summer. Two have been created as part of the Southbank’s Summer Festival of Love and a beautiful site-specific installation, Soho Room, will be unveiled at The House of St Barnabas.
Whilst Götz’ practice ranges in scale from site-specific wall paintings and room-sized spatial installations to paintings and drawings, there is a clear coherence and dialogue across his body of work through its continual referencing and engagement with ideas about architecture and space. The artist characteristically uses abstract geometric forms, fields and lines of intense colour, juxtaposed with one another.
Lothar Götz is represented by DOMOBAAL in London and Petra Rinck Galerie in Düsseldorf.
