Uncertain States of America
08 Oct - 11 Dec 2005
American Art in the 3rd Millennium
08 October - 11 December 2005
The exhibition is curated by the museums director Gunnar B. Kvaran and the internationally acclaimed curators Daniel Birnbaum and Hans Ulrich Obrist. Wishing to provide a picture of the new generation of American artists, the curators have chosen young artists with a new vision. This art can be characterized as narrative and with a clear social and political consciousness. Yet one can also find a wide specter of themes and artistic ‘languages' in the exhibition, which, in addition to extensive multi-media installations, includes a video- and sculpture exhibition, together with a program of performances, a lecture series and an extensive catalogue.
The artists presented in the exhibition:
Allora & Calzadilla
Edgar Arceneaux/Rodney McMillian
Matthew Day Jackson
Cristina Lei Rodriguez
Mario Ybarra Jr.
