The Kunsthalle in Krems was a real treat. (Not to mention the lovely little town along the Danube) We went to watch the Francis Picabia exhibition. We had mixed feelings regarding the artist but the exhibition itself was nice and the curating too.
What I liked the most is the building itself. The wallpapers on the staircase remind me on Kusama’s work. The former tobacco factory is turned into a great space which houses more exhibitions in the same time.
Krems is an absolute must! The Kunstraum Stein belongs also to the Kunsthalle Krems. It is in a separate building, which is more ancient and the wooden stairs squeak beneath your feet. Here, to our biggest surprise, our friend’s (György Katona) friend Dan Perjovschi exhibited his works. He reacts also on current political happenings on huge murals, such as Qui Zhijie (see earlier this blog) but is much more to the point and witty.
