"Robert Klippel - A Tribute Exhibition"
2002-08-09 until 2002-10-13
Art Gallery of New South Wales
Sydney, , AU Australia

Comprising more than 250 pieces, this exhibition encompasses Klippel's development from figurative sculpture into abstraction, from Surrealist wood carvings to the extraordinary junk assemblages of the 1960s and 1990s. It also reflects the diversity of Klippel's artistic output, both in his choice of materials (stone, wooden pattern parts, plastic toy kits, industrial piping, machine parts, bronze, photography and collage, to name a few) and the range of scale (from the intimate to the monumental).

"Robert Klippel was Australia's greatest sculptor and arguably one of the most significant sculptors of his generation internationally. Klippel's particular vision, inspired by the intricacies and the profusion of our natural and man-made environments and by his quest for a spiritually relevant form, stands alone in the history of Australian art." - Deborah Edwards, Curator of Australian Art

To accompany the exhibition, the Art Gallery of New South Wales is publishing a comprehensive monograph and a CD ROM catalogue raisonné -- the first of its kind produced on an Australian artist -- which provides detailed information on more than 1,200 of Klippel's sculptures.
