Barbara Westermann’s sculptures, prints, and drawings are minimalist and conceptual, with an emphasis on architecture, relief, geometry, and music.
She has shown her work widely, including solo shows at Malkasten in Dusselfdorf Germany, the La Jolla Museum of Contemporary Art, and the Freiburg Museum of Contemporary Art in Germany. She delivered a lecture called ‘documenta urbana’ at the documenta in 2012 in Kassel, Germany. She has published prints with Clay Street Press in Cincinnati. Recent shows include the E|AB Fair, Cade Tompkins Fine Arts, Clay Street Press Gallery, Momenta Art, Proteus Gowanus, the Museum of the National Library of Spain, FluxFactory in Long Island City, NY, RealArtways in Hartford, CT, the University of Rhode Island, Brown University, and Art Resources Transfer. Westermann taught a course called Materiality and Social Sculpture at the New School for Social Research in New York for many years, and studio courses at Providence College, Roger Williams University, and the Rhode Island School of Design. Progressive Insurance of Cleveland, OH, recently purchased a sculpture for their permanent collection.
