press release

Running alongside the large-scale and long-term projects in the Main Galleries, The Front Room operates at a different rhythm, with exhibitions lasting anywhere from a day to a few weeks. Designed for more reactive, nimble, and experimental exhibitions—and devoted to lesser-established and younger artists who work internationally, nationally, and locally—this ongoing exhibition series tests the boundaries of conventional programming and echoes the elasticity and simultaneity of contemporary culture. While each Front Room project operates by loose associations from one to the next, the program remains independent from the Main Galleries. The Front Room allows the museum to reflect the urgency of art-making in our contemporary moment and serves as an always-active curatorial sketch-book.

Fia Backström (January 23 - February 8) Sean Snyder (January 23 - May 3) Sung Hwan Kim & Clemens von Wedemeyer& Alix Pearlstein & Sven Augustijnen (with Auguste Orts) & Aurélien Froment (February 11 - 22) Evas Arche und der Feminist (carte blanche) (February 25 - March 8) Susanne M.
