VALIE EXPORT Research – Archive – Oeuvre
Vox Contemporary Image Center
401-2 Sainte-catherine Street East
Montreal H2x 1k4
This monographic exhibition is part of a research program, revisiting major artistic practices, here with a significant body of work that has never been presented in Montreal. Together with the artist, the curator Sabine Folie developed an exhibition that—after its first presentation at the Lentos Kunstmuseum Linz in 2017 and the Neuer Berliner Kunstverein (n.b.k.) in 2018—will now be shown at VOX.
VALIE EXPORT. Research – Archive – Oeuvre includes important works by the artist that in a unique way document EXPORT’s creative process and combines them with archival material such as sketches, letters, photos and notes. The archival material comes from the artist‘s pre-mortem bequest, which is being researched under the direction of Sabine Folie at the VALIE EXPORT Center Linz since November 2017 and is accessible there to an interested public.
