Sigmar Polke (German, 1941-2010) was one of the most voraciously experimental artists of the 20th century. The current show at the David Zwirner Gallery in Chelsea focuses on the paintings of Polke when he traveled extensively in the 1980, as well as some fun tourist haunts of the 1960's. Thus the title of the exhibit "Eine Winterreise Journey" (Winter Journey). The show is curated by Vicente Todoli, includes some large-scale works such as "Magnetische Landschaft" (Magnetic Landscape), and the "Lapplandische Reise" (Lapland Journey) series from 1984 - as well as experimental films documenting Polke's experiences.
