Modern Art Oxford’s final exhibition of 2016 is KALEIDOSCOPE: The Vanished Reality. The exhibition brings together the work of artists who explore systems of display in art that reveal power dynamics at work in the reality of wider society.
The artists, from different generations, present ways in which visual materials – images, objects and artworks – are mediated by the contexts in which they appear. The exhibition presents work by Marcel Broodthaers, Hans Haacke, Iman Issa, Darcy Lange, Louise Lawler, Maria Loboda, Kerry James Marshall, Katja Novitskova, Yoko Ono and Hardeep Pandhal.
Working with photography, sculpture, painting, video and installation, these ten artists have each explored the relationship between the production of artwork and social, political, economic and cultural conditions in which it is created.
This is the concluding exhibition in a year of interconnected shows, which has brought together the work of international artists spanning the last 50 years who examine subjects from perceptions of time to globalisation, consumerism to cultural identities, and memory, intimacy and endurance, as well as revisiting Oxford’s own history.
