Beate Kuhn: Turn

Sun., June 30, 9 a.m.

Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh members are invited to a special viewing experience of our new exhibition, Beate Kuhn: Turn.

Beate Kuhn (1927–2015) was a German sculptor known for her rhythmic ensembles of deconstructed, ceramic forms such as discs, cylinders, cones, and spheres. She also channeled beautiful and sublime aspects of nature with formal allusions to succulents, seeds, mushrooms, and invertebrate animals.

Beate Kuhn: Turn, the first museum exhibition of the artist’s work in the United States, introduces American audiences to Kuhn’s visually arresting creations in clay. Join us for an exclusive look at the exhibition and an opportunity to socialize with fellow members over light bites and refreshments.
