ASSEMBLED: The Art of Robert Klippel

Exhibition and Shows

23 Nov 2019 to 16 Feb 2020

ASSEMBLED: The Art of Robert Klippel presents more than one hundred works by one of Australia’s most significant twentieth century sculptors, Robert Klippel (1920-2001), the tireless inventor who experimented with unusual materials, techniques and dramatic variations in scale.

Klippel is regarded as a giant of Australian art, and having associated with Henry Moore, Eduardo Paolozzi and André Breton in the late 1940s, during his time in New York in the 1950s he became a member of ‘The Club’, the highly influential artist group founded by Willem de Kooning and Jackson Pollock.

The exhibition highlights three major aspects of Klippel’s six decade-long career: the Surrealist-inspired sculptures and drawings made in London and Paris during the late 1940s; the ‘assemblage’ works including his so-called ‘junk sculptures’ of the 1960s and 70s; and his late timber works that often used brightly coloured machine pattern-parts.

Curated by Kirsty Grant and organised by TarraWarra Museum of Art, ASSEMBLED: The Art of Robert Klippel brings together works from private collections as well as public institutions including the National Gallery of Australia, Art Gallery of New South Wales and National Gallery of Victoria.
