Death to Pigs
28 February to 27 May, 2018

Kunsthalle Wien, Museumsquartier
Vienna, Austria

We are pleased to announce Ydessa Hendeles's upcoming exhibition, Death to Pigs at Kunsthalle Vienna. This is the first institutional retrospective of Hendeles in Europe. Hendeles interweaves personal experience with narrated and interpreted elements. In her complex room installations, she places art, historical artifacts, photography and audiovisual media in myriad interrelationships with one another. Her compositions can be read as provocative, psychologically charged meditations on human nature.

The exhibition draws on several of the artist's main areas of work from the past decade, showcasing them in the form of a multi-layered narrative. The central work, Death to Pigs, is a multi-part installation that discusses stigmatization and escalating violence on a metaphorical level. Death to Pigs was first exhibited at Barbara Edwards Contemporary in October 2016.

Restoration of Nimbus
Alaska State Museum Building, Juneau, Alaska

In 1978, Robert Murray's large-scale public sculpture Nimbus was installed at the Dimond Courthouse in Juneau, Alaska. Having been the subject of much public controversy over the years, Murray has recently overseen the restoration of the ten-ton steel sculpture to its original brilliance. Intended to reference the striking appearance of an iceberg, the work may now be seen on its current site outside of the new Alaska State Museum building.
