From 199C to 199D

Le Magasin – Centre National d’Art Contemporain de Grenoble presents an exhibition by artist Liam Gillick. From 199C to 199D is the second part of a collaborative process that began with the artist working alongside students of the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College (New York) in 2012. For Le Magasin a completely new exhibition has been produced that reexamines many key works by the artist from the 1990s in close collaboration with the students of the École du Magasin.

 

Re-activating Liam Gillick’s works questions the mutual relationship between the curatorial, the artist, the institution and the viewer, providing a new perspective on the future of contemporary artistic forms. The exhibition becomes a time game where the near future and the recent past collapse, creating a new scenario in which the artworks and the ideas of the artist are revealed anew; a space of critical exchange and new debates is opened.

 

 

Liam Gillick lives and works in New York. He has presented his work on several occasions at Le Magasin, in particular with The Trial of Pol Pot (1998) alongside Philippe Parreno.
