ROOM TO PLAY. CHANGEABLE ART
Landesgalerie Linz / 05. Oct. 2017 till 14. Jan. 2018
Opening: Wednesday, 4 October 2017, 6.00 pm
Exhibition period: 5 October 2017 to 14 January 2018
Landesgalerie /2nd Floor
The exhibition “Room to Play. Changeable Art” explores a unique art form for the first time in Austria. Around 80 exhibits from 59 renowned Austrian and foreign artists will be brought together, which – in contrast to conventional paintings or sculptures – are special in that they are variable. They can be changed manually by replacing, reinserting, turning them etc. The 1960s and 1970s form the temporal frameworks – the epochs, when these various innovative art forms peaked. Contemporary artists are presented in their own section of the exhibition, which closely examines the possibilities of variability in their works in a wide variety of ways.
A selection of exhibits are presented in the interactive educational programme specially developed for the exhibition. In addition, visitors are offered the possibility of changing some of the artworks themselves in the “Play Rooms”.
