Klovicevi Dvori Gallery, Zagreb, Croatia 

One work from the Infeld Collection is part from the exhibition in “Klovicevi dvori”: The Watercolour „In the garden of pigs“ from the year 1933 is an early work from Ivan Generalic, one of the most popular Croatian naïve artists.

The emergence of Zemlja Association of Artists in 1929 radically changed the Croatian art scene between the two wars. Zemlja was a group of academically educated artists (Krsto Hegedusic), peasants (Ivan Generalic) and workers.

The Infeld Haus of Culture in Halbturn dedicates a personal exhibition to the artist Josef Bramer. He is regarded as a poetic loner in the Austrian art scene.

Josef Bramer paints in old master technique with meticulous accuracy without any loud pathos. As a graduate of Rudolf Hausner's master class at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, he was given a precise description of the object and richly nuanced colors. Josef Bramer creates his silent but urgent messages with reliable skill and confident knowledge without submitting to fashion.

His paintings seems like an inner monologue. Quiet, self-contained, Josef Bramer fully fills his formats with tremendous perseverance.

This year, the Infeld Cultural Center in Dobrinj is showing a cross-section of representative works from the Infeld Collection.
From over 3000 works collected over the past fifteen years, around 140 works by 42 artists have been selected. It is part of the collection strategy to increasingly acquire groups of works rather than isolated individual works in order to facilitate a complex understanding of the artistic idea.

Infeld Haus der Kultur in Halbturn shows a personal exhibition of the Austrian artist Florentina Pakosta. She devoted herself to art against every external resistance. At the beginning of her work reacted Pakosta in her drawings to the discrimination against women in the Austrian society in general and in the art scene concrete.

In the 1990s turned Florentina Pakosta gradually away from black-and-white, figurative work in favor of an abstract visual language. Until today, she creates series of characteristic tricolor paintings, which emerge from the experienced emotion.

The parish barn in Trausdorf an der Wulka, Austria

90 printed graphic works by Friedensreich Hundertwasser from the Infeld collection become a part from the exhibition „Hundertwasser“ in Trausdorf.

Hundertwasser was undoubtedly one of the greatest Austrian visual artists of the 20th century. He was a painter, graphic artist, architect, activist and globetrotter in personal union.

In his art, he reinvented the color scheme and revolutionized the printmaking.

The Infeld House of Culture in Halbturn pays tribute to Tone Fink on his 75th birthday and exhibits works from the protagonist from the 1970s to 2018.

Energetic, imaginative and versatile, he is a pictorial lateral thinker. For Tone Fink, the boundaries between art genres exist in order to be skipped, because he needs variety and is a draftsman, painter, object artist, actionist and performer, filmmaker and art teacher.

Lentos Museum, Linz

Maria Lassnig and Arnulf Rainer rank among Austria’s most successful artists. Lassnig would be 100 this year, Rainer celebrates his 90th birthday. The two first met in Klagenfurt in 1948. The years they spent together proved of seminal importance for both their works.

The exhibition at the Lentos Museum puts on display works that illustrate points the two artists had in common as well as individual forms of expression.

Museum Gugging, Maria Gugging, Austria

The oeuvre of Philipp Schöpke (1921-1998) is enigmatic and fascinating. With great endurance, he made the human figures transparent and their heart and reproductive organs visible.
The fate of this creative mind is exemplary for all those Art Brut artists whose work went unheeded because of their position on the margins of society.
Three drawings from the Infeld collection become a part from the exhibition in the Museum Gugging.
