The N.C. Zeitgeist Foundation Hosts its 3rd Successful Biennial TEASE – Transatlantic Exhibition of Art in the Southeast
The N.C. Zeitgeist Foundation hosted its 3rd biennial Transatlantic Exhibition of Art in the Southeast at the elegant Elder Gallery of Contemporary Art in Charlotte on October 3 as well as at Appalachian State University in Boone on October 5, 2018. The Foundation’s curator Johanna Steinz worked for the 2018 tour with the German artist Christian Ristau as well as with Charlotte-based artists Regine Bechtler, Terry Thirion and Isaac Payne and, in Boone, also with Christine Perry. The numerous visitors experienced a wonderfully stimulating and entertaining ambience as the artists personally interacted with them and showcased their refreshing mix of sculpture, painting and open-minded presence.
TEASE – Transatlantic Exhibition of Art in the Southeast 2018 was part of the initiative Deutschlandjahr USA. Under the slogan “Wunderbar together”, the year of German-American Friendship 2018/19 (Deutschlandjahr USA) promotes events and exhibitions featuring modern Germany across the United States in the fields of politics, culture, education, science, business, and industry. The project is funded by the German Federal Foreign Office, implemented by the Goethe-Institute and supported by the Federation of German Industries (BDI). Additional support for TEASE 2018 was provided by International Ceramic Construction, Lufthansa and Kühne + Nagel.
