    The August Sander exhibition at New Walk Museum

    ARTIST ROOMS: August Sander
    29th September 2012 - 6th January 2013
    New Walk Museum & Art Gallery, Leicester

    Presenting one of the most comprehensive
    exhibitions of August Sander’s work in England.

    New Walk Museum & Art Gallery are delighted to announce one of the most comprehensive exhibitions of August Sander’s work in England, presenting 175 works by one of the twentieth century’s most important photographers.

    The exhibition of German photographer August Sander (1876-1964) draws together 175 photographs and a wide range of archival material from the collections of Tate, National Galleries of Scotland, Anthony d’Offay and Gerd Sander.

    This presentation creates a unique opportunity to see the different facets of August Sander’s photographic practice, including his celebrated portraits alongside less well known aspects of his work.

    August Sander’s most significant project was ‘The People of the Twentieth Century’. Sander wanted to create an encyclopaedic survey of different types of people from the first half of the twentieth century. His working life in Germany spanned the First World War, the interwar years, the rise of the Nazi party, the Second World War and its aftermath.

    His photographs are unflinching documents of a society going through huge change. The work reflects both the catastrophic political convulsions that Germany was enduring and a society slowly coming to terms with the impact of industrialisation. The clarity and breadth of his vision remains powerful and his vocational portraits still resonate today.

    More information on the exhibition and events surounding it are available here:

    About ARTIST ROOMS and the Art Fund

    ARTIST ROOMS On Tour is an inspired partnership with the Art Fund - the fundraising charity for works of art, making the ARTIST ROOMS collection of international modern and contemporary art available to galleries throughout the UK. ARTIST ROOMS is jointly owned by Tate and National Galleries of Scotland and was established through The d'Offay Donation in 2008, with the assistance of the National Heritage Memorial Fund, the Art Fund and the Scottish and British Governments.

    The guiding principle for the creation of ARTIST ROOMS is the concept of individual rooms devoted to particular artists so that the work of important post-war artists can be seen and appreciated in depth. The collection of over 1000 works includes major bodies of work by seminal figures such as Diane Arbus, Joseph Beuys, Vija Celmins, Gilbert & George, Damien Hirst, Anselm Kiefer, Jeff Koons, Jannis Kounellis, Robert Mapplethorpe, Bruce Nauman, Ed Ruscha and Andy Warhol.

    For more information visit the Tate gallery website or National Galleries of Scotland website.

    The Art Fund have, since 1903, helped over 700 museums and galleries throughout the UK acquire thousands of great works of art from 2,000 BC to the present day for the public to enjoy. In 2008 they gave an exceptional grant of £1 million towards the acquisition of ARTIST ROOMS, Anthony d'Offay's collection of international modern and contemporary works.

    Leicester Arts and Museums would like to thank the Art Fund for their generous support, their project funding enabling us to positively engage young people with contemporary art that has life-long meaning and impact on their lives.
