On November 23, 2018, the famous Düsseldorf gallery owner Alfred Schmela would have celebrated his hundredth birthday. To mark this occasion, the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen is organizing an exhibition that shows the wide-ranging network of this “pioneer of the avant-garde.”

Emil Cimiotti

Emil Cimiotti is considered to be one of the pioneers and leading exponents of German informal sculpture.
Over a period of almost 60 years, Cimiotti produced a huge oeuvre in an unmistakable visual language, which found expression in different forms at various stages of his work: from landscape to figurative, from rough to detailed, from representational to abstract.
The “Structures” monograph presents a retrospective overview of Cimiotti’s sculptures and drawings, including his most recent works, which express the artist’s extraordinary and unabated resilience.
