Lentos Friends

Friends support and help one another where they can. For example in researching, collecting, preserving and communicating. The Association of Friends of the Lentos aims to support and promote the museum. Through the purchase of art works the association supports the museum direction in further expanding the Collection. Since the Association was founded in 1985, members have purchased works by Tony Cragg, Gerwald Rockenschaub or EVA & ADELE and others. With their friendship they contribute to strengthening Lentos as one of the leading addresses for modern and contemporary art, thus promoting the important social, artistic and academic tasks of the museum. The museum also gives something back to you as a good friend: you become part of a pulsating art scene and provide – tax deductible – support for one of the most important museums of modern and contemporary art in Austria.

Tue 18.10Treffpunkt Lentos Friends: Karl Hauk“

Andreas Strohhammer guides us through the exhibition dedicated to the extensive oeuvre of the first director and later head of the master class for painting at the Linz School of Art, as which he played a decisive role in the artistic education of the first post-war generation. The subjects of his works are predominantly in a figurative, scenic style; they show his neo-objective approach to painting as well as expressionist currents.
