From September 23, 2023, the Kunstmuseum Schloss Derneburg presents an exhibition by American artist Katherine Bradford, the first solo museum presentation of the artist’s work in Germany.


Saturday | September 30, 2023 | 4 pm

On the occasion of the exhibition opening of Katherine Bradford: Fear of Shoes, September 23, 2023, Kunstmuseum Schloss Derneburg is pleased to invite you to a conversation between the artist and Lisa Felicitas Mattheis, Director of Kunsthalle Emden. The artist talk will take place on Saturday, September 30, 2023, 4pm.

Bradford is best known for making luminous and dreamlike works that merge color field painting with figuration. Employing a direct and often whimsical language of composition, Bradford’s paintings depict an imagined view of the world that prompt an introspective look at the complex forces of thought and emotion that comprise the human experience. This exhibition is the first solo presentation of the American artist in Germany.

Lisa Felicitas Mattheis is academic director of Kunsthalle Emden and chairwoman of the Henri and Eske Nannen Foundation and Otto van de Loo Donation. Previously, she has worked for the Kunsthalle Mannheim and the Sprengel Museum Hannover.

Tickets for the event are available here.

Participation at no additional charge to a regular/discounted admission ticket to the museum.

The talk will be in English. Tickets are limited.

The event will be held outside if the weather allows.
