Photorealism

50 Years of Hyperrealistic Painting

Since Photorealism cannot be seen as a concluded art movement, this show is rather a retrospective displaying more than 60 works from three different generations of artists – beginning in the late 1960s. Today, after more than 40 years, the Institute for Cultural Exchange organizes the first and largest European retrospective. Our travelling exhibition tour started in spring 2013 and will travel within the following years to several venues in Europe.
