The Kunsthalle of the Hypo Cultural Foundation is a world-renowned exhibition space. As a house without its own collection, when it comes to exhibitions the possibilities are endless. Topics range from the art of antiquity to the immediate present. Equipped with the latest technology and offering approximately 1,200 sqm of exhibition space, the museum offers a worthwhile and attractive platform for art works of various genres. In three exhibitions per year, more than 300,000 visitors are welcomed. Right in the heart of Munich and within the Fünf Höfe/Theatinerstraße shopping area, the Kunsthalle Munich is always worth a visit. We offer fascinating temporary exhibitions.
Current exhibition: „Canada and Impressionism – new Horizons”
For the first time in Europe, the Kunsthalle Munich presents masterpieces by Canadian Impressionists from the late 19th to the early 20th century. Featuring 120 paintings that have rarely been seen, if at all, mostly loans from Canadian museums and private collections, the exhibition introduces 36 artists who – quite unjustly – are virtually unknown in this part of the world.
The journey of the young Canadian art scene starts in Paris: the promise of studying under the illustrious artists in the French capital, at that time the heart of the art world, enticed droves of painters to Paris. Some remained in Europe while others returned to their homeland, where they introduced the Canadian public to impressionist painting. In scenes depicting everyday life and landscapes in Canada, they captured the incomparable moods produced by the interplay of the natural environment, light and climate of the North. They made a significant contribution to the worldwide phenomenon of Impressionism with their works, all the while creating a highly distinctive, inimitable art for the young Canadian nation.
Organized by the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa in collaboration with the Kunsthalle München.
