Lenbachhaus Museum, Munich Germany
Curated by Stephanie Weber
This exhibition is the first survey of the artist’s idiosyncratic oeuvre. Our title "Ways of Attaching" is purposefully equivocal: Attaching is a method for binding materials together, as well as one for establishing emotional connections with friends and peers, past and present, which was central to Mayer’s understanding of art. At Lenbachhaus, the focus is on Mayer’s sculptural methods of draping, knotting, stretching, and balancing; methods which metaphorically extend into the artist’s larger practice of drawing, writing, and performance through the 2000s.
