I visited the exhibition Distributors at West Gallery to write a review for Villa La Repubblica. Read the full review here (in Dutch). The exhibition was made by artist Remco Torenbosch with works by six artists of very different generations but all were/are busy with the distribution of/in their works in an alternative way.
There is Charlotte Posenenske’s iconic Revolving Vane of 1967/68 in combination with
sounds by Hannah Weinberger of 2015 and
a diagram Spectrum of Meanings of the Term Police by K.P. Brehmer from 1978.
In the big front gallery Brehmer’s works are
combined with textiles from the Seth Siegelaub Collection. These are
textiles from far away (France to Peru) and long ago (12th to 19th century).
Next to the office Fred Lonidier’s video Confessions of the Peace Corps of 1974 can be seen and
in the back gallery Wendelien van Oldenborgh’s La Javanaise of 2013 can be seen. All these artists have thought of how to distribute the information or artistic content they want to share and made distribution part of their aesthetic ventures.
