Air Conditioned. Graduate Exhibition 2019

Opening19 June 2019, 19:00Städel Museum, Schaumainkai 63, 60596 Frankfurt am Main

Offering a wide spectrum of positions, themes and discourses within contemporary art, the graduate exhibition 2019 features 20 artists: Immanuel Birkert, Xenia Bond, Jakob Brugge, Harry Chapman, Olivia Coran, Edi Danartono, Onur Gökmen, Siri Hagberg, Stian Hansen, Helena Hasson, K-K, Valentina Knežević, Niwat Manatpiyalert, José Montealegre, Ivan Murzin, Max Negrelli, François Pisapia, Sóley Ragnarsdóttir, Kristin Reiman and Julian Tromp. 

Climate control, an invisible phenomenon, became a ubiquitous, and essential quality of exhibition architecture in museums. Temperature and humidity are regulated in order to extend the life of art works, and museum spaces seem to exist outside of weather conditions. This year’s graduate exhibition, ‘Air Conditioned’, points to climate control as an underlying structure of art displayed in museums, assuming that an institution climatically controlling its rooms also conditions the subjects that move within it. With a nod to the historical exhibition “The Air-Conditioning Show” (1967-67) by the artists’ collective Art & Language – in which an air conditioner in an otherwise empty gallery reduced the show to a single structural component – the graduates’ works similarly position themselves in relation to the mechanisms of art production and display. One can’t escape complicity though, with both institutional conditioning, and our contemporary context of late capitalism. Are the artists’ works then, like air itself, a composition of all of these elements?

The graduates studied in the classes of: Monika Baer, Gerard Byrne, Peter Fischli, Nikolas Gambaroff, Douglas Gordon, Judith Hopf, Hassan Khan, Laure Prouvost, Tobias Rehberger, Willem de Rooij, Amy Sillman, Wu Tsang and Haegue Yang.
