COME ALIVE! An exhibition in the spirit of Corita Kent

COME ALIVE! An exhibition in the spirit of Corita Kent

We are pleased to present “COME ALIVE!”, an exhibition in the spirit of Corita Kent. With historic silkscreen prints and re-enacted installations, along with selected works by Stefan Strumbel, Katrin Fridriks, Aaron Rose and Adrian Falkner.

Admired by Charles and Ray Eames, Buckminster Fuller and Saul Bass, Corita Kent (1918–1986) was one of the most innovative and unusual pop artists of the 1960s, battling the political and religious establishments, revolutionizing graphic design and encouraging the creativity of thousands of people – all while living and practicing as a Catholic nun in California. Mixing advertising slogans and poetry in her prints and commandeering nuns and students to help make ambitious installations, processions and banners, Corita’s work is now recognized as some of the most striking – and joyful – American art of the 60s.

Her work is included in permanent collections of major museums, such as Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York), Museum of Modern Art (New York), Victoria and Albert Museum (London), Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Art Institute of Chicago, Bibliothèque Nationale and Centre Pompidou in Paris, Museum Ludwig (Cologne).

The exhibition will feature original works by Corita and re-enacted installations along with statements of contemporary art, that refer back to the slogan “Come Alive!“ and Corita’s ideals and visions.
