Reconsidering Art History and Exhibition Making

15 November 2014

London, United Kingdom  | ICA London


How has the restaging and remaking of exhibitions developed a typology of exhibitions that alter the way we consider previously unregistered artistic networks, events and artists? That reveal a more complicated set of interrelations between exhibition histories and art history? A panel, organized at the ICA London in collaboration with Contemporary Art Heritage Flanders (CAHF), will explore the restaging of exhibitions and the complex mediation between art history and their own materiality. Chaired by ICA Executive Director Gregor Muir, the panel will include Philippe Van Cauteren, Director S.M.A.K., Hans-Jürgen Hafner, Director of Kunstverein Düsseldorf, and Victoria Walsh, Head of programme Curating Contemporary Art, Royal College of Art.

Contemporary Art Heritage Flanders (CAHF) is a collaborative knowledge platform initiated by and built around the collections of four contemporary art museums in Flanders, Belgium: S.M.A.K. (Ghent), Mu.ZEE (Ostend), M HKA (Antwerp) & Middelheimmuseum (Antwerp).
