Breitz’s ‘Profile’ on exhibition in Finland

Having recently been acquired by the Saastamoinen Foundation, Candice Breitz’s Profile is included on an exhibition of the Foundation’s collection, titled Touch / Saastamoinen Foundation Art Collection, at the Espoo Museum of Modern Art in Finland (13 February – 16 September 2018). The exhibition is made up of three different sections – Human, space and encounters; Human, identity and body; and Human and power respectively – with the overarching theme of humanity at its core. As a permanent exhibition at the institution, the works on show will change periodically to feature new acquisitions in the collection.

Breitz’s ‘Profile’ on view at Columbia University

Commissioned for the South African Pavilion at La Biennale di Venezia 2017, Profile by Candice Breitz now travels to New York for Columbia University’s group exhibition titled Purple Hearts (16 January – 14 February). As part of the university’s LOVE 2018 series, hosted in the LeRoy Neiman Gallery, the exhibition considers western pop culture’s conceptualisations of love, using lyrics from the Drake song Sneakin’ as a starting point to examine how ‘love is a battlefield’, how love hurts’ and why (or if?) ‘love is worth fighting for’.

Candice Breitz on the Kunstmuseum Bonn’s re-hung permanent exhibition

Monument Series by Candice Breitz has been included on the Kunstmuseum Bonn’s permanent group exhibition, Re-Vision: New Presentation of the Collection, in Germany. Seeing the museum’s collection as a vital organism, a breathing entity – more than simply a presentation of individual artworks – the exhibition offers re-interpreted perspectives, through various visual dialogues and relationships, on the works in the permanent collection. Re-Vision: New Presentation of the Collection marks the fifth re-hanging of the museum’s permanent collection.
