This catalogue accompanies the exhibition at Zwirner & Wirth:
POP: Roy Lichtenstein, Konrad Lueg, Claes Oldenburg, Sigmar Polke, Gerhard Richter, Andy Warhol
May 3 – June 29, 2005
Sigmar Polke (1941–2010) is widely recognized for his multidisciplinary output of paintings, photographs, drawings, prints, objects, installations, and films. Characterized by a relentlessly experimental and inquisitive approach to a wide variety of styles and subject matter, the artist’s work engages unconventional materials and techniques, and playfully defies social, political, and aesthetic conventions. Throughout his prolific career, Polke challenged the limits of his subject matter and materials in a rigorously inventive investigation of image-making and perception.
