We hope our unconventional museum learning experience evokes a sense of wonder in students. In the years leading to the building’s opening, we will expand our school outreach effort to showcase the museum as a resource for educators and students.
Five Artists: Sites Encountered
7 June to 20 October 2019
Five Artists: Sites Encountered brings together an international group of artists whose varied approaches offer ways to rethink ideas of site and place. The exhibition features a wide array of work—including sculptures, installations, and films—by Lee Bul (Korean, born 1964), May Fung (Hong Kong, born 1952), Ana Mendieta (American, born Cuba. 1948–1985), and Charlotte Posenenske (German, 1930–1985), as well as a specially commissioned project by Lara Almarcegui (Spanish, born 1972).
This all-female line-up spanning multiple generations and geographies and hailing from different historical moments offers their individual perspectives on the idea of site—from intangible to tangible, imagined to real. Their work together provides a thought-provoking dialogue with the physical site around the soon-to-be-completed M+, and also more generally prompts us to explore our sense of belonging in the world.
Programmes accompanying the exhibition include reconfiguration performances of Charlotte Posenenske’s sculptures, conversations with exhibiting artists, teachers’ private viewings, and a series of thematic and curator-led tours. Access services can be arranged in advance.
