From 199A to 199B: Liam Gillick
Marking the twentieth anniversary of the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College, the Hessel Museum of Art presents a survey of Liam Gillick’s work from the 1990s, focusing on work that pushed for a new awareness of how art institutions function. Most are seen here in the United States for the first time.
This exhibition guide, produced by Liam Gillick, provides visitors with details of the original context in which the work was made, the artist’s original intent in proposing the work and instructions for realizing each project. The installations in many cases rely upon the interpretation and collaboration of various participants whose contributions may unfold over time.
