This event has ended.

Sperone Westwater presents, for the first time in the United States, a survey of works by members of the Zero group created between the late 1950s and late 1960s. Inspired by the recent survey “ZERO: Internationale Kunstler-Avantgarde der 50er/60er Jahre,” which opened at the Museum Kunst Palast in Düsseldorf and traveled to the Musée d’Art Moderne in Saint Etienne (2006-2007), “ZERO in New York” has been assembled with the support and collaboration of most Zero artists and their respective foundations. The exhibition has been organized by David Leiber, Director of Sperone Westwater and Mattijs Visser, Founding Director of the Zero Foundation.

The Zero movement was initiated in the late 1950s by two Düsseldorf-based artists, Heinz Mack and Otto Piene. The term “Zero,” which the artists coined to describe their concept, later came to define an international movement taken up by artists across Europe. “ZERO in New York” concentrates on the movement’s artistic output between 1957 and 1966 and examines the unusually collaborative relationship that developed between groups of artists in Germany, Holland, France, Italy, Belgium, and Switzerland in the late 1950s and early 1960s.
