HELNWEIN RETROSPECTIVE AT THE ALBERTINA MUSEUM VIENNA


HELNWEIN RETROSPECTIVE AT THE ALBERTINA MUSEUM VIENNA


This exhibition will display about 200 works from 1969 to the present.

Exhibition duration: 24 May - 13 October 2013


"Well, the world is a haunted house, and Helnwein at times is our tour guide through it. Not all of Gottfried's work is on a canvas. A lot of it is the way he's approached life. And it doesn't take someone knowing him to know that. You take one look at the paintings and you say "this guy has been around." You can't sit in a closet - and create this. This level of work is earned. As an artist my strongest reaction to Helnwein's work is that it challenges me to be better at what I do. There are very few people that achieve utter excellence in what they do. And I think that Gottfried Helnwein is certainly one of those people."
Sean Penn
