Joseph Beuys at National Gallery of Canada

Joseph Beuys at the National Gallery of Canada is a rare opportunity for audiences to experience works by one of the 20th century’s most influential artists. Sculptor, performance artist, draughtsman and teacher, Beuys is renowned for introducing a new theory of sculpture, and an expanded concept of art, in the years following the Second World War.

Spanning four decades of the late German artist’s enigmatic practice, this special exhibition brings together fifteen major sculptures and a selection of drawings. On public view for the first time in North America, the works are from two important private collections, including that of Céline and Heiner Bastian, the latter of whom was Beuys’ former assistant and long-time friend.

Tracing the development of Beuys’ sculptural oeuvre and exploring his parallel practice of drawing, the exhibition also highlights the artist’s unique use of materials and the themes that fuelled his art — from animal life to his own personal narrative. Discover why Beuys continues to fascinate in this unprecedented presentation at the National Gallery of Canada.
