Rainer Crone (June 7, 1942, Hamburg - June 2016, Regensburg ) was University Professor emeritus of Contemporary Art and History of Film at Ludwig Maximilian University in Munich and a specialist in the art of Andy Warhol. He previously taught at Yale University, the University of California, Berkeley, Columbia University, and New York University.
The International Associates for Contemporary Art - I.A.C.A. (1985 to 1991) was the first curatorial program, recognized globally, as part of a major educational institution, Columbia University's Department of Art History and Archeology, with its own exhibition spaces, the Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Art Gallery." During these years, Rainer Crone integrated into his theoretically-oriented art history seminars a direct personal discourse with prominent and emerging figures in contemporary art in New York City and beyond. Through these initiatives, Crone supported the work of students at Columbia, Munich, and elsewhere. Crone led student visits to artists' studios, including those of Roy Lichtenstein, Donald Judd, Richard Serra, Claes Oldenburg, Richard Prince, Roni Horn, Philip Taaffe, Eric Fischl, David Salle, Julian Schnabel, and Peter Halley. He also organized lectures by artists at Columbia. A result of Croneâ€™s curatorial and pedagogic initiatives was the thematic exhibition Similia/Dissimilia, conceived and organized by Crone in collaboration with his students (1986â€“87). The show presented an early contemporary section (1960 to 1966) featuring artists Donald Judd, Joseph Beuys, Alighiero Boetti, John Chamberlain, Eva Hesse, Robert Ryman, Jasper Johns, Yves Klein and others, with as-yet unexhibited examples of their early work, along with the work of younger artists including Francesco Clemente, Peter Halley, Roni Horn, Anish Kapoor, Imi Knoebel, Tim Rollins & K.O.S., Philip Taaffe, Rosemarie Trockel, and Georg Herold. This exhibition was first hosted in the US by Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Art Gallery at Columbia University, Ileana Sonnabend Gallery and Leo Castelli Gallery in New York - and was subsequently shown at Kunsthalle DÃ¼sseldorf, Germany.
