Neuer Aachener Kunstverein Presents Josephine Meckseper's 2X(I)ST, 3/29-5/25
Neuer Aachener Kunstverein is pleased to present Josephine Meckseper's solo exhibition 2X(I)ST.
Meckseper's works meld the aesthetic language of modernism with the formal language of commercial display, combining mass-produced objects with images and artifacts of historical and political events. In her shop window installations, large-scale display sculptures, paintings, photographs, and films, she draws a direct correlation to the way our consumer culture has historically shaped cultural production as well as how early Modernism and the avant-garde developed into a form of political and aesthetic resistance to classism and capitalism.
Josephine Meckseper's work has been exhibited in numerous international biennials and museum exhibitions worldwide, and is in the permanent collections of various institutions, including the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, The Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, migros museum für gegenwartskunst, Zürich, and the Kunstmuseum Stuttgart. The artist lives and works in New York.
OPENING 29 March 2014, 7pm
