Featuring artworks by:
Phyllida Barlow   Jimmie Durham   Daniel Knorr   Mark Leckey

With the renovation of the Löwenbräukunst-Areal, the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst finally has a permanent framework for the presentation of its collection: a spacious exhibition floor will host temporary shows offering insight into different aspects of the museum’s holdings. The first three presentations from the collection are dedicated to contemporary work in sculpture. Selected works illustrate multifaceted and dynamic developments and the growing dissolution of the boundaries that conventionally define sculpture. The first chapter features works by Phyllida Barlow, Jimmie Durham, Daniel Knorr, and Mark Leckey.
