LUXEMBOURG.- Mudam Luxembourg – Musée d’Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean continues its winter-spring season with the most significant retrospective to date dedicated to the paintings of Jutta Koether (b. 1958, Cologne). The exhibition presents four decades of Koether’s paintings produced between 1983 and 2018, several of which have rarely been shown previously. Tour de Madame is a collaboration with the Brandhorst Museum in Munich and was listed as one of the top 10 exhibitions of the year in Artforum magazine.

At Mudam, the exhibition is organised as three moments. In the West Gallery, a retrospective view of paintings created between 1983 and 2016 is presented in a “salon” style that references collectors’ cabinets, and the memory of the first retrospective exhibition staged by Pablo Picasso in Zurich in 1932. Presented in the East Gallery is the eponymous Tour de Madame, a cycle of 15 paintings made by Koether for the exhibition. In the pavilion gallery, Koether presents her creative universe as a dynamically orchestrated audio-visual environment.

Tour de Madame highlights the historical significance of Koether’s oeuvre as a counter-history to the (male-dominated) canons of modernism and post-modernism, and the understanding of painting in our contemporary world as part of a dynamic set of historical, cultural and social relations.

To accompany the exhibition, a catalogue, co-produced by the Brandhorst Museum and Mudam, covering the years from 1983 to today, has been published. With a foreword by Achim Hochdörfer and Suzanne Cotter, this fully illustrated catalogue brings together new essays by Manuela Ammer, Benjamin H.D. Buchloh, Julia Gelshorn, Branden W. Joseph, Tonio Kröner, Michael Sanchez, and Anne M. Wagner. A programme of events also accompanies the exhibition with tours, projections and talks by visiting scholars, including Jenny Nachtigall, Research Associate at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich, and Ewa Lajer-Burcharth, Art Historian and Professor at Harvard University.

Jutta Koether was born in Cologne in 1958. She lives and works in Berlin and New York. Her work has been the subject of recent exhibitions at the Museum Brandhorst in Munich (2018), Praxes Center for Contemporary Art in Berlin (2013), Arnolfini in Bristol (2013), Dundee Contemporary Arts in Dundee (2013), the Moderna Museet in Stockholm (2011), the Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven (2009), among others. Her works are part of collections displayed at major international museums, such as the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, the MoMA in New York, the MOCA in Los Angeles, the Nationalgalerie in Berlin, the City of Paris’ Museum of Modern Art, the Art Institute of Chicago and Mudam Luxembourg – Musée d’Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean.
