Annette Messager at Institut Valencià d’Art Modern (IVAM) in Valencia, Spain
"Annette Messager. Pudique – Publique" is an eponymous retrospective of works at Institut Valencià d’Art Modern (IVAM) in Valencia, Spain.
Annette Messager challenges the traditions of craftwork, the art of making things by hand, by transforming handmade work into a personal statement of history and womanhood.
The exhibition demonstrates the impossibility of a linear interpretation of her work, emphasizing the need for the viewer to become an active participant and accept responsibility for generating an interpretation of it.
As part of opening night, the artist will have a conversation with the art critic, historian and journalist Elisabeth Lebovici on July 5, 2018.
