Parkett Artists, 1984 – 2017 (vol. 1 – 100/101)

"Commissioned by PARKETT, the most important artists of our time have created editions that represent the essence of their art or reveal an unexpected dimension. The works cover every possible medium including painting, photographs, drawings, prints, sculptures, videos, DVDs,and sound pieces."

Iwona Blazwick, Director, The Whitechapel Art Gallery, London

“… the diversity of works on view offer a sense of what artists can do with the challenge of how to distill their practices into a single, compact object or image … in doing so the show goes beyond traditional notions of space, scale and scope, in ways both subversive and poetic.”

Philip Tinari, Director, Ullens Center for Contemporary Art, Beijing

Zurich, Kunsthaus,
"Parkett -20 Years of Artists' Collaborations," 2004

"... Parkett’s editions highlight the Zeitgeist, the hopes and fears of artists in the globalized world, their questions of identity, of past and future, their zest for life, and their creation of new utopias..."

Kanazawa, Japan 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art
"200 Artwork – 25 Years," 2009

"If you want to see the entire forest, in terms of contemporary art, instead of looking at trees, this exhibition is a fitting choice. While blockbuster exhibitions usually focus on a single artist or group, the exhibition showcases 200 artworks by as many world-renowned artists ... offering a stunning wrap up of contemporary art at a glance."

La Revue Parkett, 1987

"A show of the work produced for a revolutionary magazine functions as a mini-museum of the recent time."

University Castilla La Mancha, Arts Faculty Permanent Parkett Viewing Room and Study Center (open since 2010)

"The collection allows the University to present a dynamic, lively museum in full dialogue with the main centers of contemporary art in Spain. Together with the artworks, the Faculty also displays all Parkett volumes published since 1984, and in doing so fully reflects Parkett's unique character as a small museum and large library. 'The scholarly and teaching character of this collection is very significant' concludes the Faculty's vice dean."
