The ALBERTINA Museum is pleased to announce the donation of a prominent collection: the museum’s holdings have been augmented by the Collection of Dagmar and Manfred Chobot. The selection of works now being exhibited on the museum’s lower level affords an initial glimpse into this major donation of 800 artworks.
The activities of these two collectors and their Galerie Chobot, founded in 1971, have been tied quite closely to contemporary art output in Austria. They have been involved above all with works on paper and sculptures. The donation includes works by Herbert Brandl, Gunter Damisch, Adolf Frohner, Bruno Gironcoli, Alfred Hrdlicka, Florentina Pakosta, Arnulf Rainer, Franz Ringel, Erhard Stöbe, Erwin Wurm, Robert Zeppel-Sperl, Karl Anton Fleck and many more.
The exhibition is on view from 13 December 2019 until 23 February 2020.
