The last three and a half decades have been an especially fertile period in German art, during which large-scale works - particularly large-scale photographs - have notably evolved. Comprised of paintings, sculptures, photographs, and works on paper, Made in Germany features established greats Anselm Kiefer, Sigmar Polke, and Gerhard Richter; sculptors Katarina Fritsch and Thomas Schütte; influential photographers Bernd & Hilla Becher, Thomas Demand, and Thomas Ruff; and up-and-coming painters Kerstin Bratsch and David Ostrowski, among others.

Organized by Chief Curator/Curator of Contemporary Art René Paul Barilleaux, the exhibition reflects the unique perspective of the Rubell Family Collection, one of the world’s largest privately owned contemporary art collections first established in 1964. The Rubell Family has long been key collectors of German art, but no exhibition focusing on their German holdings has ever been presented - until now.
