Exhibitions: winter/spring 2017
In the winter/spring season, the Museum der Moderne Salzburg is placing a focus on strong personalities from contemporary art as well as addressing topical issues about the museum as an institution and its media. At Mönchsberg, a unique exhibition on Charlotte Moorman celebrates, for the first time, the life and work of this legendary US-american musician and artist. Acknowledging her role as the organizer of the influential Annual Avant Garde Festival of New York, the show also includes works by her contemporaries such as Nam June Paik, Yoko Ono, and John Cage. Meanwhile, the next exhibition of the permanent collection addresses the interaction of movement, the body, and light in art. The current Walter Pichler retrospective, dedicated to an artist whose work crossed the boundaries between architecture, design and sculpture, continues until early June. At the Rupertinum, we are exploring our changing audiences and the art museum as an interactive space in a process-driven exhibition. A second exhibition, which also encompasses the Generali Foundation Study Center, honors Roland Goeschl. In case you have yet to see Dan Perjovschi’s extremely popular installation in the Rupertinum’s atrium, this has now been updated by the artist, following the elections in the United States and in Austria.
Due to the special character of these exhibitions we provide free access to the Rupertinum.
We hope you will enjoy our varied program this season!
