"Private/Corporate II is the second of a series of exhibitions in which the DaimlerChrysler Collection intends to conduct dialogues with international private collections. The "Private/Corporate" exhibition emerged from looking at our existing art holdings through the eyes of a related collecting interest.
Works by about 20 international artists will be shown as a joint venture with the Ileana Sonnabend Collection.
Visitors can see work ranging from 1960 to the present day. Around 30 pictures, objects, sculptures, drawings and photographs offer an impressive survey of current artistic ideas.
The Sonnabend Collection emerged from the gallery founded jointly by Ileana Sonnabend and her first husband Leo Castelli in New York in 1954. It developed constantly, from 1962 with her second husband, Michael Sonnabend, in Paris, in the field of tension between American and European artistic developments.
The Sonnabend Gallery, active in New York again from 1971, helped to pave the way for many of the major art movements after 1945.
The DaimlerChrysler Collection, which now includes about 1300 works by about 300 artists, focuses on an abstract-constructive, conceptual or minimalist view of images and addresses 20th century abstract tendencies.
