Vienna; museum quartier’ ‘in Places of Transitions’
by Venetia Kapernekas
Libia Castro and Ólafur Ólafsson exhibit amongst other artists in Places of Transition, an exhibition opening on January 23 in Museum Quartier in Vienna.
In search of various forms of contemporary models for living, the exhibition „Places of Transition“ at freiraum quartier21 INTERNATIONAL shows a selection of international works that examine the visual and discursive possibilities of location-specific transition. On the basis of predominantly photo and video installations, the exhibition explores processes of transformation and in narrative form addresses some of the global changes we have experienced in recent years and decades. The exhibition is curated by visual and cultural theorist Gülsen Bal with artist and curator Walter Seidl.
