STUTTGART.- In 2014 the Great State Prize for Fine Arts of the Federal State of Baden-Württemberg is awarded for the first time under its new name: The Oskar Schlemmer Prize goes to internationally recognised contemporary artists with a connection to Baden-Württemberg and entails a solo exhibition.

The first winner of the Oskar Schlemmer Prize is the internationally renowned artist Katharina Grosse who is presenting two new works at the Staatsgalerie Stuttgart. For Katharina Grosse there are no limits to painting. Having started out in the tradition of colour-field painting, the artist has been expanding colour into space, architecture and landscape for more than two de-cades, defying material boundaries and taking the medium far beyond its traditional domain. Making colour manifest in space, she paints on a wide range of supports – floors and façades, balloons and mounds of soil, textiles and objects as well as on canvas and paper – in an equally wide range of techniques that include brushes, rollers and spray guns. Not bound by formal principles of figure and ground, her works explore questions of perception and scale. And despite the narrative titles of her installations and exhibitions, which suggest a longing for a conceptual world, her works dispense with symbols, references and documents. Instead Katharina Grosse allows col-our to expand as autonomously as possible, thereby postulating the elementary conditions and potential of painting.

Katharina Grosse, born in 1961 in Freiburg/Breisgau, lives and works in Berlin. She studied at the academies of Münster and Düsseldorf. Before her appointment as professor of painting at the Düsseldorf Academy of Art in 2010 she taught at the Berlin Weissensee School of Art for ten years.

Internationally recognised, the artist regularly takes part in prestigious group exhibitions and biennials, for example in São Paulo and Sydney, and has been honoured with important solo exhibitions by numerous leading institutions, among them the UCLA Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, the Renaissance Society in Chicago, the Museu de Arte Contemporânea de Serralves in Porto, the Kunstmuseum Bonn and the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas. The Public Art Fund is currently showing her first outdoor sculpture in front of the MetroTech Center in Brooklyn, New York. Works by Katharina Grosse can be found in public and private collections, among them the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Kunsthaus Zürich and the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen in Düsseldorf.
