"Steve McQueen"
2001-05-09 until 2001-08-19
Kunsthalle Wien, Museumsquartier
Wien, , AT Austria

With Steve McQueen, the first exhibition shown in the new exhibition halls, the Kunsthalle Wien moves into its new building in the Vienna MuseumsQuartier. The official general opening will take place on June 11 with the exhibition A Baroque Party.

With his powerful, mostly silent films, Steve McQueen, born 1969 in London, has meanwhile become something like a secret star of the international art scene. His short art films are modern in a classical sense. Their emotion-charged directness is stunning, and they are characterized by an impressive minimalism in the use of filmic means.

In 1999, Steve McQueen received the Turner Prize, Great Britain’s most distinguished award for contemporary artists. In the Kunsthalle exhibition, the first-time-ever presentation of Steve McQueen’s work in Austria, the artist will be showing some earlier films, but also his most recent pieces. One special treat in the exhibition will be his latest film, TRICKY (2001).
