Focusing on Lassnig's work with the self-portrait – exploring herself becoming an object, animal, cyborg – the exhibition contains works from 1942 to the near present. The show will feature approximately 40 paintings, mostly from the studio of the artist, as well as a selection of watercolours and filmic works. In collaboration with Universalmuseum Joanneum, Graz.
Maria Lassnig (8 September 1919 – 6 May 2014) was an Austrian artist known for her painted self-portraits and her theory of "body awareness". She was the first female artist to win the Grand Austrian State Prize in 1988 and was awarded the Austrian Decoration for Science and Art in 2005. Lassnig lived and taught in Vienna from 1980 until her death.
