TWO TOGETHER EXHIBITION 31 OCTOBER 2019 I LEVEL 4
Zeitz MOCAA proudly presents an exciting new installation of its permanent collection as part of a recent reimagining of the museum’s galleries and spatial organisation. The collection will forthwith be on view on the fourth floor and will be re-installed annually.
The new exhibition, Two Together, is built around major themes expounded by artists represented in the collection, and each gallery will contain a pair: either two objects, or multiple works by two artists, or two major themes – either in dialogue, as counterpoints, in contrast, or in sync.
As couples do, in comedic duos or in romance, the exhibition will embrace a rigorous engagement between objects and ideas. On view from 31 October, 2019
