Ryan Gander ―These wings aren't for flying

April 29 – July 2, 2017


Using art from the past and a wide array of everyday objects as materials, the internationally active artist Ryan Gander (born in England in 1976) creates works that strongly stimulate our imagination. This exhibition, Gander’s first solo show at a public museum, will consist of approximately 60 notable and new works by this unusually gifted artist.

The Greatest Story Ever Told ―The Collection curated by Ryan Gander

April 29 – July 2, 2017


Using the instinctive human ability to think in terms of comparisons as a basic premise, the artist Ryan Gander will introduce works from the museum collection in pairs. While displaying a physical resemblance, the numerous pairs, derived from different genres and eras, will provide us with a host of new perspectives. They will also illustrate the fact that contemporary art does not rely on the abilities of an individual person, but is instead based on a body of common knowledge.
