Progressive Praxis (group show)
de la Cruz Collection, Miami
29 November 2016 - November 2017
Progressive Praxis considers the impact of preceding art movements and the way contemporary artists conceptually engage with the advancements of technology. Our society is conditioned to create, disseminate, and alter information as it sees fit. The use of computers as a method of executing work is no longer a game changer for artists, as there are no traditional boundaries between the virtual and physical. Artists today embrace technology to overcome the limitations of physicality and past formal art processes. The artists selected for this year’s exhibition, reveal a generational position that is inherent to an artistic idea and the language of their time.
The architecture of the galleries was taken into consideration in framing this exhibition.

The World is Made of Stories: Works from the Astrup Fearnley Collection (group show)
Astrup Fearnley Museum, Oslo
4 December 2015 - 30 May 2017
Nobody can see, perceive or apprehend the whole world on their own. We all learn about the world through others, through different kinds of stories told by the media or by individuals. The exhibition ‘The World is Made of Stories’ is a constellation of narrative works that tell private and public stories. Together, they make up a multi-layered narrative referring to different times and geographical places. It is a story about art history, urbanism, politics, memory, sexuality and violence, religion and aesthetics, to name just a few of the themes that the artists have addressed in their works using a variety of materials, techniques and narrative structures. ‘The World is Made of Stories’ offers a polyphony of voices, objects and images, which enlighten while also raising important questions.
