SULLIVAN, Megan Francis
Oral History of Exhibitions 2013–2019

Of course there is the practice of art by the artist, but an exhibition is even more so an engagement between people, places, institutions, projections, desires, coincidences, memories, and temporalities. In this monograph, artist Megan Francis Sullivan chooses the format of oral history, engaging various akteurs of the field to produce a web of language reflecting a shape of time. [publishers’ note]

To which we may add that what happens through the conversations is that the interpretation of the exhibitions, as well as their material reality, is challenged in a pretty stimulating way through exchanges involving the artist, the curators and gallerists she worked with, but also writers, graphic designers, fellow artists, with whom she collaborated, discussed projects, or who may have – or not – visited the exhibitions that are studied here...

With discussions with Jean-Claude Freymond-Guth, Melanie Ohnemus, David Lieske, Cornelia Kastelan, John Rasmussen, Marie Angeletti, Kelsey Olson, Megan McCready, Sara De Bondt, Antony Hudek, Alexander Schröder, Valérie Knoll, Helmut Draxler, Aura Rosenberg, John Miller, Robert Müller, Cecilie Norgaard, Moritz Scheper, Maximiliane Baumgartner.

And an essay by Hannes Loichinger, “The Painting of Hans Haacke.”
