  • Spirit of Austria
    October 3, 2015 - February 20, 2016
    KAI 10 | Arthena Foundation
    Düsseldorf, Germany

    Curated by Zdenek Felix the show Spirit of Austria focuses on the works of three contemporary artists in Austria : Franz Graf (*1954), Markus Schinwald (*1973) and the group Gelatin (Wolfgang Gantner (*1968), Ali Janka (*1970), Florian Reither (*1970) and Tobias Urban (*1971)). However different these artistic positions may be, they share a tendency towards a narrative, socially relevant and at times even provocative practice, one that is grounded in a specifically Austrian tradition.

  • Markus Schinwald
    September 9, 2014 - December 13, 2014
    CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts, San Francisco, USA

    The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) in partnership with the CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts will present Markus Schinwald, on view at the Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts.

    This exhibition by Austrian artist Markus Schinwald (b. 1973) marks his first major commission for a U.S. institution. The site-responsive installation will include an architectural intervention that changes the physical and psychological potential of the gallery, providing a display apparatus for Schinwald’s paintings and sculptures.

    Schinwald’s work focuses on the body and the way that it manifests physical and psychological constraints. Using a range of media—painting, sculpture, photography, video, performance, and installation—he creates fragmented narratives in which objects, images, and spaces have newly amplified aspects or forms.
