The German artist Kurt Schwitters (1887-1948) remains one of the most influential figures of the international avant-garde. In the years following the First World War he coined the term  Merz,  in reference to his ambition to  make connections ...between everything in the world.  Hoping to unify life and art by incorporating non-art into his work, this pioneer of installation art came closest to his ideal with his Merzbau, a room-size walk-in sculpture constructed of found materials.

Placing special emphasis on the significance of color and light in the artist's work and delving into the relationship between collage and painting, Kurt Schwitters: Color and Collage will present the first overview in the U.S. of the artist's oeuvre since the MoMA retrospective of 1985. In addition to a full-scale reconstruction of the Merzbau, the exhibition will include roughly 100 assemblages, reliefs, sculptures, and collages from 1918-1947, with emphasis on Merz works from the 1920s and 1940s.
