Anna Boghiguian

The Museum der Moderne Salzburgpresents the first institutional solo exhibition of the work of Anna Boghiguian (1946 Cairo, EG) in the German-speaking countries. The Egyptian-Canadian artist with Armenian origin became known to a larger audience through her contributions to documenta 13 (2012) and the 14th Istanbul Biennal (2015) as well as her work for the Armenia pavillion at the 56th Biennale di Venezia (2015), which was awarded the Golden Lion. Boghiguian's art traces the emergence of historic trade routes in the Mediterranean world since antiquity and the persistent global impact of colonialism and slavery.

The successfully launched series of site-specific installations in the Rupertinum’s atrium, which remain in place for a full year, will be continued in 2018 by Anna Boghiguian.

Curator: Sabine Breitwieser, Director; with Marijana Schneider, Curatorial Assistant, Museum der Moderne Salzburg

The exhibition is a rearranged adaption of an exhibition organized by Castello Rivoli Museo d'Arte Contemporanea, Rivoli-Turin, in conjunction with Sharjah Art Foundation.
