"What if: Art on the verge of architecture and design"
2000-05-06 until 2000-09-03
Moderna Museet
Stockholm, , SE Sweden

WHAT IF is an attempt to take the temperature of contemporary art through focusing on one of its clearest trends - the interest in architecture and design. Many artists refer to - even cannibalise - these sister disciplines for formalistic purposes and as an expression of a longing for something concrete and literal in a world where facts and fiction, the virtual and the real meld more and more together. But rather than present all the various perspectives on architecture and design one encounters in contemporary art, What if aims to highlight and discuss how the relationship of art to these areas van provide contemplative as well as critical reflections for a continued discussion.

What if consists of three different but equally important parts: an exhibition, three symposia - or rather, a listen-in in the exhibition, and a publication. The listen-ins involves artists, architects, designers, city planners, media people etc. The first listen-in, Shifting places/Shifting scales, will take place at the opening of the exhibition itself, and is a collaboration between the School of Architecture, KTH, in Stockholm and Moderna Museet. The symposium will be held in English. The publication, designed by the artist Pae White, consists of a set of posters. It will function as part of the exhibition rather than as a reflection of it.

The exhibition is curated by Maria Lind and filtered by Liam Gillick.
