rivane neuenschwander in group show at museo de arte zapopan, mexico

13 May 2014
Gallery artist Rivane Neuenschwander features work at 'Atopia: Migration, Heritage and Placelessness. Works from the TBA21-Collection'. The exhibition is located at Museo de Arte Zapopan in Guadalajara, Mexico and was developed in collaboration with Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary (TBA21) in Austria. ‘Atopia' is based on a selection of artworks from TBA21's collection of contemporary art.

Atopia, a word mainly used in medicine and philosophy, literally means placelessness, out of place, unclassifiable and of high originality. The exhibition focuses on the practices and representations of the ways in which artists have accessed, rehearsed, participated in and negotiated concepts of "place" or "place of origin," their past, heritage, and cultural ambiguities, with all the dilemmas such notions provoke.

Rivane Neuenschwander's work 'I Wish Your Wish', 2003 is included in the exhibition.

The exhibition will run from 13 May until 6 October 2014.
