Susan Hiller: A Work in Progress
Drawing solely from the Museum’s holdings in modern and contemporary art, American artist Susan Hiller assembles approximately thirty-five works, all of which struck her as being “simultaneously poetic, political, melancholic, and optimistic.” Hiller’s journey through the Museum’s collections drew her to works dealing with fragmentation, text, mortality, typography, and art by women, among other subjects. Rather than revolving around her own work, the exhibition presents a personal selection that reflects the artist’s deepest interests. The presentation includes works by artists from around the world in a variety of mediums, among them: Walid Abu-Shakra, Christian Boltanski, Elisa and Andre Breton, Gaston Zvi Ickowicz, Anselm Kiefer, and Barbara Kruger.
