Dürer: The Artist as Network: A Conversation with Parker Ito and Armin Kunz
Saturday, September 18, 2021
2:00 PM–3:00 PM
Albrecht Dürer (1471–1528) has never really gone out of style. In part because of the range of artists who have been inspired by him over the last five centuries—and even today—his work retains a keen contemporary edge. Old Master print dealer Armin Kunz and artist Parker Ito discuss the networks formed by Dürer’s printed imagery and the inexhaustible connections between old and new.
Parker Ito has exhibited at museums and art centers internationally, including the Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Copenhagen; Museum of Contemporary Art, Denver; Times Museum, Guangzhou; Institute of Contemporary Arts, London; Sifang Art Museum, Nanjing; Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, Paris; Fall River Museum of Contemporary Art, Fall River; and Trondheim Kunstmuseum, Trondheim. Solo and group exhibitions of his work have been presented at Beijing Art Now Gallery, Beijing; White Cube, London; Sadie Coles HQ, as part of CONDO London; Château Shatto, Los Angeles; Galeria Mascota, Mexico City; Andrea Rosen Gallery, New York; Team Gallery, New York and Los Angeles; Air de Paris, Paris; Three Star Books, Paris; and Berggruen Gallery, San Francisco.
Armin Kunz is the owner of the art dealership of C.G. Boerner. The firm was founded in 1826 in Leipzig and has always specialized exclusively in Old Master prints and drawings. Today it maintains galleries in Düsseldorf, Germany, and New York. Armin’s MA thesis was on the prints of Dürer’s contemporary Lucas Cranach. Apart from being an art dealer, he tries to find time to occasionally write reviews of exhibitions and publications on the art of the Dürer period and on German Romanticism.
