For Art Asia Pacific Magazine special Feature Inside Burger Collection, Christina Végh, director of the Kestner Gesellschaft in Hannover, met with artists Teresa Hubbard and Alexander Birchler to discuss their project about American artist Flora Mayo, created for the Switzerland Pavilion at the 57th Venice Biennale, as well as feminism, power relations, narrative structures and reframing history.
In conjunction with the exhibiton “Giacometti” at the Guggenheim Museum, Hubbard / Birchler will speak about their work in the Swiss Pavillion at the 57th Venice Biennial. They will share some of their research about the previously unknown American artist, Flora Mayo. Mayo studied and lived in Paris in the 1920’s and Alberto Giacometti was her lover.
On the occasion of the current collection presentation at the Modern, Teresa Hubbard / Alexander Birchler will present a lecture on their most recent project “Flora”.
Currently on view at the Modern is the photographic series “Holes”, as well as forthcoming, the installation of “Grand Paris Texas”. Both works are part of the Collection of the Modern, acquired in 2009.
In conversation with Blanton curator Veronica Roberts, the Austin- and Berlin-based artists Teresa Hubbard and Alexander Birchler will discuss their film installation, Giant, and the experience of representing Switzerland in the current Venice Biennale.
