Exhibition at Opelvillen Rüsselsheim Extended

As a result of the high number of visitors and the positive feedback, the Arts and Culture Foundation Opelvillen Rüsselsheim announced the extension of the current exhibition 'Niki de Saint Phalle und das Theater – At Last I Found the Treasure' until 26 March 2017.

With already more than 5,000 visitors, the exhibition ranks among the most successful in-house productions of the foundation. Afterwards, the exhibition will move to two associate museums, the Leopold-Hoesch-Museum in Düren and at the 'Art Collection' in Jena.

The extensive and diverse exhibition presents more than 100 sculptures, Nanas, installations and paper works. For the first time, it deals with the Niki de Saint Phalle’s almost forgotten theatrical legacy. The exhibition is a cooperation with the Niki Charitable Art Foundation and former theatre director Rainer von Hessen. He had first sparked Niki's interest in theatrical work, when - under his pseudonym Rainer van Diez - he asked her to create the scenery and the costumes for his staging of 'Lysistrata' in 1966.

This awoke her passion for the theatre and soon she began to write her own play 'ICH', which premiered at the documenta fair in Kassel in cooperation with Rainer von Diez. For the finisage of the exhibition, Rainer von Hessen and his former assistant director Dieter Bitterli invite visitors to engage in an open debate and talk about their time with Niki de Saint Phalle.

The admission fee is 10 Euros and includes the entrance to the exhibition, with extended opening hours on this last evening (until 9 pm). You can find more information on the exhibition here on Art-Scene-TV.
