Early this Summer, the Arp Foundation will be holding a conference at the American Academy in Berlin on Hans Arp’s reception among collectors, museums, galleries and artists in the United States. Arp was a key figure for artists like Robert Rauschenberg and Donald Judd who engaged with Arp’s work in an intensive dialogue. Now the foundation is bringing together academics, curators and art market experts to promote new approaches to Arp’s work.
The event opens with an Evening Lecture by Catherine Craft of the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas. Speakers the next day include Cara Manes (MoMA), Brandon Taylor (Ruskin School of Art, Oxford), Eric Robertson (University of London), Maike Steinkamp (Stiftung Arp), David Nash, (Mitchell-Innes & Nash), Carrol Janis and Arie Hartog (Gerhard Marcks Haus).
