Hommage à VALIE EXPORT
Curator Sabine Folie
LENTOS Kunstmuseum Linz
Today, VALIE EXPORT is internationally considered to be one of the most important exponents of conceptual media, performance and cineastic art. In honour of her 80th birthday, the LENTOS, whose holdings of works by VALIE EXPORT were substantially enlarged in 2015 when the museum purchased the artist’s pre-death estate, will present a selection of outstanding works. Chosen with a view to illustrating the many facettes of the artist’s oeuvre, these works, partly from the LENTOS’s own collection, partly on loan from other museums, will be shown in two representative rooms of the museum’s own collection.
Works selected by Sabine Folie, Director of the VALIE EXPORT Center Linz
