Hirshhorn and Phillips Collection To Stage First U.S. Museum Survey of Markus Lüpertz

The Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden and The Phillips Collection have announced the opening of two exhibitions celebrating the work of artist Markus Lüpertz, one of Germany’s most prominent living artists. This spring collaboration features “Markus Lüpertz: Threads of History” (May 24–Sept. 10) at the Hirshhorn and “Markus Lüpertz” (May 27–Sept. 3) at the Phillips. Together, the exhibitions mark the first in-depth U.S. survey of Lüpertz’s practice, offering American audiences the first chance to see the full creative evolution of a leading neo-expressionist artist of his generation.
