The Artist’s Museum is an exhibition featuring artworks made up of existing objects and artifacts. The exhibition illustrates how collections have served as inspiration, and material, for new works that have a unique dialogue with history. The show features works by Rosa Barba, Carl Bove, Anna Craycroft, Rachel Harrison, Louise Lawler, Mark Leckey, Pierre Leguillon, Goshka Macuga, Christian Marclay, Xaviera Simmons, Rosemarie Trockel, and Sara VanDerBeek. Curated by Dan Byers.
The catalogue has contributions by Claire Bishop, Lynne Cooke, and Ingrid Schaffner, as well as a historical compendium of exhibitions related to the theme of collecting.
