Collection on Display: Emmanuelle Antille, Christoph Büchel, Angela Bulloch, Phil Collins, Alicia Framis, Olaf Nicolai, Cady Noland, Costa Vece, Stephen Willats


23 November 2013 – 2 February 2014


Opening: Friday, 22 November



Collection on Display presents selected works from the collection of the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst. The first two exhibitions from the collection to be held in 2013 continue the cycle of shows exploring contemporary sculpture we initiated in 2012. Both presentations bring together works that draw on a modernist formal vocabulary while also engaging with different materials and their connotations. Questions of (re)presentation are another central issue.

In the second half of 2013, we will launch a three-part cycle of exhibitions from the collection that will examine the role, functions, and possibilities of space and interiors in contemporary art, featuring works by L/B, Christoph Büchel, Heidi Bucher, Jimmie Durham, and others. The installations to be displayed in these shows address specific spatial arrangements or constitute self-contained spaces within the museum space. We will focus on topics such as the installation in space as a participative setting, space as a site of recollection, and the psychological energies invested in spatial architectures and structures.


The presentations from the collection are curated by Judith Welter (Collection Curator, Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst).
