The Middelheim Museum presents SOME TIME, a solo exhibition of works by Richard Deacon.
The exhibition is made up of 31 works, both monumental and smaller pieces, which will be on display in various parts of the museum grounds. The title of the show, SOME TIME, refers to the conditional and limited nature of time and captures themes and forms that Deacon has been exploring in his oeuvre throughout his 40-year career.
Deacon’s work Never Mind is central to the exhibition, a key piece from the museum collection that has been restored and re-coated in stainless steel especially for the exhibition.
Richard Deacon: What You See Is What You Get is the first major museum exhibition in the United States, and will include roughly 40 works from more than three decades of Deacon's oeuvre.
Along with loans from private collections as well as from institutions including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C., this exhibition will debut a new work by Deacon.
Richard Deacon has been awarded the Ernst Franz Vogelmann Prize for Sculpture, given jointly by Städtische Museen Heilbronn (Municipal Museums Heilbronn) and the Ernst Franz Vogelmann Stiftung (Ernst Franz Vogelmann Foundation), both based in Heilbronn, Germany. The prize will also include a solo exhibition at Kunsthalle Vogelmann in autumn 2017.
