kippenbergerAs is the sad truth for countless artists, Martin Kippenberger did not receive wide recognition until after his death from liver cancer at the young age of 44.  Known for his “live fast and drink hard” life style, this German artist created a vertiginous range of works that have been since featured at prominent art museums such as the Tate Modern in London and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles.  

Now Kippenberger’s pieces are being featured as a new retrospective exhibition in the Museum of Modern Art.  Starting March 1st the 6th floor of the MOMA will be filled with Kippenberger’s paintings, sculptures, works on paper, installations, multiples, photographs, posters, announcement cards, books, and music.  Make your way up to see all the brilliance and don’t forget about Target Free Fridays.
