Thomas Schütte's "Scenewright" is the first installation in a three-part presentation. Part II (February through June 1999) will concentrate on memorials and monuments; and Part III (September 1999 through March 2000) will focus on the motif of the human figure in his recent work.


Artist Biography

Thomas Schütte was born in Oldenburg, Germany, in 1954. Between 1973 and 1981, he studied fine art at the Düsseldorf Art Academy with Fritz Schwegler and Gerhard Richter. Since his first solo shows in 1979, Schütte has exhibited widely in Europe and elsewhere. A large touring exhibition of his work, titled "Thomas Schütte," recently traveled to London, Tilburg, and Oporto. Among many group shows, he participated in documentas 8, 9, and 10 (1987, 1992, and 1997), and the Münster Sculpture Projects in both 1987 and 1997.
