Ingvild Goetz is an other German based in Munich, whose eponymous collection (3,500 pieces to date) is displayed in a Herzog and De Meuron designed glass box, the inspiration for Tate Modern.
Goetz’s most recent project, which finished this month, was a joint exhibition of Polish artist Paulina Olowska and Scottish artist Lucy Mckenzie, called “Noël sur le balcon/ HOLD THE COLOR”. It was the first time that Goetz gave her entire space over to the artists, who curated the show and made several pices for it.
