Museum MMK
Aug 17 – Feb 16, 2020
MMK Frankfurt
Frankfurt, Germany

A museum of the present must always be a different one. In a time of constant change and the attending sense of powerlessness, the exhibition Museum seeks to open up and occupy new spaces. Rather than critically questioning the institution, the focus is on exploring its possibilities.

With works from the collection, new productions and loans, the exhibition Museum strives to unfurl the current liberties of art and thus of the present museum. Gestures of configuration, transformation and transgression here aid in the endeavor to conceive of – and make perceivable – the Other.

Artists: Michael Asher, Jo Baer, Joseph Beuys, Alighiero Boetti, Marcel Broodthaers, A.K. Burns, Tony Cokes, Tony Conrad, Tracey Emin, Jana Euler, Hans-Peter Feldmann, Fischli/Weiss, Parastou Forouhar, Ryan Gander, Gilbert & George, Anne Imhof, On Kawara, Martin Kippenberger, Oliver Laric, Claude Lelouch, Li Liao, Bruce Nauman, Olaf Nicolai, Roman Opalka, Blinky Palermo, Laurie Parsons, Adrian Piper, Pamela Rosenkranz, Cameron Rowland, Robert Ryman, Victoria Santa Cruz, Sturtevant, Rosemarie Trockel, Gavin Turk, Cy Twombly, and Jeff Wall.

  • How we remember tomorrow
    Feb 13 – Jun 15, 2024
    University of Queensland Art Museum
    Brisbane, Australia

    How we remember tomorrow celebrates storytelling across generations, through oceans and waterways and transcending eras and perspectives. Featured artists understand the watery spaces of our planet as ancestral archives: sources of knowledge that carry stories and cultural practices. Alongside their kin, they honour intergenerational narratives that are disseminated along ocean currents despite ongoing colonial legacies of forced displacement, homeland dispossession, indenture and the loss or dormancy of vital cultural practices.
