On April 20th Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary (T-B A21) opened its FIRST
SPACE IN PROGRESS concept in Vienna and presents major installations
representative of Janet Cardiff`s works: To Touch (1993), Hillclimbing
(1999), The Forty Part Motet (2001), House Burning (2001), and Feedback
(2004) as well as new collages. The major audio work The Forty Part Motet
will be exhibited at the renown Semperdepot in collaboration with the
Academy of Fine Arts Vienna.
In addition, a collector's catalogue - including a CD "walk through the
book" - focusing on Cardiff's legendary Walks will be released specially
for the occasion. The catalogue, edited by Mirjam Schaub was commissioned
and published by T-B A21 and is distributed by the Walther König Verlag,
T-B A21 SPACE IN PROGRESS
With the SPACE IN PROGRESS, T-B A21 is creating a platform for contemporary
art in Vienna, fulfilling the foundation's purpose of sharing its
collection with the public and offering its resources to artists for
production, display and critical commentary of their works of art.
Far from the commercialized gallery setting or the institutional context of
the museum and kunsthalle, SPACE IN PROGRESS redefines ways of exhibiting
art in the art world's climate of changing parameters. T-B A21's permanent
location in Vienna's city center is a 150 m2 space and acts as the nucleus
of the foundation's activities, radiating out to locations, cities, and
institutions within its programmatic reach.
