Milena Høgsberg & Alex Klein (Eds.)
Myths of the Marble documents a group exhibition at the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA), University of Pennsylvania, and Henie Onstad Kunstsenter (HOK), Norway. Co-organized by curators Alex Klein (ICA) and Milena Hoegsberg (HOK), the exhibition reflects upon how the “virtual” has been engaged by contemporary artists as a way to consider the world as a site of possibility and limitation that both permeates physical space and online experience. The accompanying catalog begins with individual profiles of each artist and expansive color images of each work, which includes painting, sculpture, and installation to video, 16-mm film, and VR technology. Informative installation views from both venues connect the essays from scholars Homay King and Tom Holert, along with artists Cayetano Ferrer, Florian Meisenberg, Sondra Perry, and art historians Iggy Cortez and Marina Isgro, discussing concepts ranging from the video game “skybox” to the complexities of the “prosthetic.” Exhibition artists are Rachel de Joode, Cayetano Ferrer, Ane Graff, Ignas Krunglevicius, Chris Marker, Daria Martin, Florian Meisenberg Shahryar Nashat, Sondra Perry, Jacolby Satterwhite, and Susanne M. Winterling.
