Teresa Hubbard / Alexander Birchler: Flora

The Bechtler Museum of Modern Art, Charlotte, is presenting Teresa Hubbard / Alexander Birchler: Flora. The site responsive installation is based on Hubbard / Birchler’s discoveries about the unknown American artist Flora Mayo, with whom the Swiss sculptor Alberto Giacometti had a love affair in Paris in the 1920s. The work, first shown in the Swiss Pavilion at the 57th Venice Biennial, probes how bias, social, economic and political structures have contributed to the historical marginalization of women artists.

Pictures in Motion.
From the Endowment Heinz E. Toggenburger.

“Television and digital media have transformed our world radically and they influence our everyday lives. So is it hardly surprising that visual artists have turned to electronic media and begun to experiment with them. The video has been used, among other things, to document performative actions, and the screen has even become a canvas, enabling painting with moving images.”

Participating Artists: Valie Export, Sylvie Fleury, Lutz & Guggisberg, Alexander Hahn, Mona Hatoum, Teresa Hubbard / Alexander Birchler, Joan Jonas, Matthew McCaslin, Matt Mullican, Shahryar Nashat, Bruce Naumann, Pipilotti Rist, Carolee Schneemann, Bill Viola, Lawrence Weiner
