Harald Szeemann: Museum of Obsessions

GETTY CENTER

Upcoming, February 6, 2018 - May 6, 2018

Research Institute Galleries I and II


Free | No ticket required


Harald Szeemann: Museum of Obsessions explores the life and career of the quintessential exhibition maker, from his groundbreaking involvement with the avant-garde movements of the 1960s and 1970s and his global contemporary exhibitions of the 1990s and 2000s to his personal reading of early 20th-century modernism. Drawn from materials in the Harald Szeemann Archive at the Getty Research Institute, the exhibition is structured as a surprising series of thematic interests: avant-gardes, utopias and visionaries, geographies, and grandfathers.

This exhibition features a satellite presentation, Grandfather: A Pioneer Like Us, on view at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (ICA LA) from February 4 to April 22, 2018.
