Space Force Construction
Performance programme curated by Peter Taub.
V-A-C Foundation presents Space Force Construction, organised with the Art Institute of Chicago, for the launch of V-A-C’s new Venetian headquarters Palazzo delle Zattere. The exhibition is a conversation between contemporary artists and historic works. Over 100 works from the 1920s and ‘30s by key Soviet artists are brought into dialogue with new site-specific commissions and recent works by contemporary artists, including Cuban performance artist Tania Bruguera noted for her strong political messages, Mikhail Tolmachev, a young artist from Moscow who explores the subject of memory through photographic archives, renowned American artist Barbara Kruger, German photographer Wolfgang Tillmans and Russian multi-media artist Kirill Savchenkov, amongst many others.
