"Coming of Age: Egon Schiele and the Modernist Culture of Youth"
2005-11-16 until 2006-01-07
Galerie St. Etienne
New York, NY, USA United States of America

COMING OF AGE, which runs from November 15 through January 7, is timed to complement the simultaneous Egon Schiele retrospective at the Neue Galerie, New York. Adolescence, the theme of the Galerie St. Etienne's exhibition, was a favorite subject common not just to Egon Schiele, but to many other early 20th century artists.

"COMING OF AGE" also includes works by Erich Heckel, E.L. Kirchner, Oskar Kokoschka, Paula Modersohn-Becker, Edvard Munch and others. At the turn of the 20th century, the notion of adolescence as a distinct developmental phase between childhood and adulthood was relatively new. From this indeterminate transitional period, there evolved a youthful subculture ready to challenge both the artistic and the social customs of the older generation. Obviously, the sexual yearning provoked by puberty was a key aspect of the new adolescent subculture, but so was the desire to overturn conventional bourgeois norms that became central to the modernist mission.

The Galerie St. Etienne is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 11-5, and at other times by appointment. A detailed checklist of the exhibition will be available free of charge on request by mail or online.
