We have been working to expand our school outreach effort to showcase the museum as a resource for educators and students. We hope our unconventional museum learning experience evokes a sense of wonder in students.

Five Artists: Sites Encountered

Exhibition period:
7 June to 20 October 2019

Five Artists: Sites Encountered brings together an international group of artists whose varied approaches offer ways to rethink ideas of site and place. The exhibition features a wide array of work—including sculptures, installations, and films—by May Fung (Hong Kong, born 1952), Lee Bul (Korean, born 1964), Ana Mendieta (American, born Cuba. 1948–1985), and Charlotte Posenenske (German, 1930–1985), as well as a specially commissioned project by Lara Almarcegui (Spanish, born 1972).

This all-female line-up, spanning multiple generations and geographies and hailing from different historical moments, offers distinct individual perspectives on the idea of site—from intangible to tangible and imagined to real. Together, the artists’ work provides a thought-provoking dialogue with the site around the soon-to-be-completed M+ building, and more generally prompts us to explore our sense of belonging in the world.  

Programmes accompanying the exhibition include reconfigurations of Charlotte Posenenske’s sculptures, conversations with exhibiting artists, a teachers’ private viewing, and a series of thematic and curator-led tours. Access services can be arranged in advance.
