THIRTEEN’s NYC-ARTS to Feature a Conversation with Neue Galerie Director Renée Price in May

Price will discuss the new exhibition “The Self-Portrait, From Schiele to Beckmann” in a May 3 segment

 

On May 3, NYC-ARTS will feature the program’s co-host Philippe de Montebello in conversation Renée Price, director of the Neue Galerie New York, about the new exhibition “The Self-Portrait, From Schiele to Beckmann,” currently on view at the museum.

An unprecedented exhibition, “The Self-Portrait, From Schiele to Beckmann” is comprised of loans from public and private collections worldwide, and features 70 self-portraits by more than 30 artists, primarily from Austria and Germany, made between 1900 and 1945. Artists featured in the Neue Galerie include Egon Schiele, Max Beckmann, Felix Nussbaum, Paula Modersohn-Becker, Käthe Kollwitz, and many more well-known and underrated figures.

“The desire to create self-portraits is strong for many artists,” said Price in a letter about the exhibition on the Neue Galerie website. “It functions, inevitably, as a barometer for the time in which it is created. Though frequently direct, a self-portrait can also obscure the artist through the use of masks, disguises, and symbols. Each self-portrait contains many layers of information, and it challenges the viewer to decode its mysteries.”

NYC-ARTS, THIRTEEN’s weekly arts and culture multi-platform showcase, brings arts lovers an all-access pass to the interesting, unusual and unique cultural offerings of the greater New York City region.

Co-hosted by New York Emmy Award winners Philippe de Montebello and Paula Zahn, with events around town reported by Christina HaNYC-ARTS showcases both world-renowned and local, community-based arts organizations.
