One of the first Germans to open a New York gallery after World War II, Reinhard Onnasch introduced artists such as Dieter Roth and Hanne Darboven to American audiences, and Americans Morris Louis, Claes Oldenburg and Kenneth Noland to German audiences. Over four decades, Onnasch built an eclectic collection— from Pop to Color Field—with a strong commitment to both American and European art, energized by a multitude of themes and stories. Curator Paul Schimmel, in his first project since leaving MoCA Los Angeles, has assembled this selected document of Onnasch’s collection for an exhibition at Hauser & Wirth, London. One particular highlight is the comprehensive documentation of Onnasch’s work as a gallerist, interspersed with photographs and publication references. An elegant anthology to a life dedicated to the arts.
