Kiki Kogelnik (1935–1997) is one of the most important Austrian-born artists of the 20th century, who lived and worked on an international level. Today, the artist is considered the only Austrian protagonist of Pop Art, but her art goes far beyond this categorization. Kogelnik's playful, colorful, and highly political work ranges from painting, drawing, ceramics and installation to performative practices, and has an astonishing topicality in terms of its subject matter. In spring 2023, the Bank Austria Kunstforum Wien will show the largest solo presentation of this outstanding artist to date.
Kiki Kogelnik invited to the 59th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia. The 59th International Art Exhibition, titled The Milk of Dreams and curated by Cecilia Alemani, is organised by La Biennale di Venezia chaired by Roberto Cicutto. The Pre-opening will take place on April 20, 21 and 22; the Awards Ceremony and Inauguration will be held on 23 April 2022.
