This group exhibition at the Guggenheim Museum gathers an international network of “like-minded artists” bound by social and intellectual connections and the “aspiration to transform and redefine art in the aftermath of World War II.”
The lineup for this first large-scale U.S. historical survey dedicated to the German artists' group Zero (1957–66) includes more than 40 artists from 10 countries.
Through a diverse range of media such as painting, sculpture, works on paper, installations, publications and photographic and filmic documentation, the exhibition explores the experimental practices developed by this extensive ZERO network of artists, including Lucio Fontana, Yves Klein, Yayoi Kusama, Piero Manzoni, Almir Mavignier, Jan Schoonhoven, and Jesús Rafael Soto.
