“Immaterial” curated by Marina Abramović opens at Paddle8 on October 26th. Here’s the info:
Marina Abramović curates “Immaterial,” an online exhibition of modern and contemporary performances and other artworks whose power exceeds material fact. “Immaterial” considers the various ways in which an object can transcend perception, acting instead in the realm of aura.
This exhibition reads history through an alternative interpretation of Marcel Duchamp’s famous 1917 work, Fountain. Abramović considers the readymade crucial for its liberation of art from the responsibility not merely to look beautiful, but to look like anything at all. The work of art becomes entirely a conduit for its context.
Artists include David Adamo, Bas Jan Ader, Francis Alÿs, Marie Cool and Fabio Balducci, Davide Balliano, Stefan Brüggemann, Kendell Geers, Yves Klein, Terence Koh, Jim Lambie, Peter Liversidge, Piero Manzoni, Santiago Sierra, and Nico Vascellari
