A Neo City

The annual theme A Neo City is designed to open up on the idea of the NEW and the visionary aspects of a city.

What is the NEW and how do we experience something as new?

We do also reflect about the term of Neo as the not new, paradoxically. Neo combined to anything could mean recurrency and repetition.

In this series of exhibitions, invited protagonists will interrogate, fathom, and redefine the antagonism of the NEW / Neo.

Marian Wijnvoord
Living Room Project
Exhibition / Performance / Photography
Marian Wijnvoord’s project is carried out in three stages: It starts as a solo exhibition with recent paintings of the artist. Subsequently and during the exhibition there is the possibility for the visitors to get inscribed in order to host a work of their choice during a period of one month in the privacy of their home. Meanwhile the exhibition continues in the museum, the empty spots of the chosen paintings testify of the works that are now part of the privacy of the homes. The artist will photograph the works in their new domestic environment, making this private part public at the closing of the exhibition in the form of a publication that will show all different stages of the project.
The artist puts several questions that seek answers through this project, which involves exhibition with performative elements:
– What remains of our carefully constructed criteria when a work finds a place in the privacy of the home?
– What become the new rules of looking at this exhibition?
– What is the effect of the two different environments on the painting itself?
The Living Room Project challenges our art-historical frameworks, our critically distant judgements. It foregrounds another, little-remarked way of looking at painting—living with an object. What matters most in exhibiting a work of art is context: where it hangs and what surrounds it. When the painting leaves the museum wall, it becomes detached from its usual frames of reference.
