Exhibitions in Closed Gallery Spaces
Conversation with Mathieu Copeland
04.JUN. 2020

Mathieu Copeland
Mathieu Copeland has been developing a practice seeking to subvert the traditional role of exhibitions and to renew our perceptions of these. He co-curated the exhibition VOIDS, A Retrospective at the Centre Pompidou, Paris, and the Kunsthalle, Bern (2009), and edited the celebrated anthology VOIDS. Among many others, he curated A Choreographed Exhibition, Kunsthalle St Gallen, Switzerland, and La Ferme du Buisson, France (2007); Soundtrack for an Exhibition (2006); Alan Vega (2009) and Gustav Metzger (2013), Musee d’Art Contemporain, Lyon or again A Mental Mandala, MUAC, Mexico City (2013). He initiated and curated A Spoken Word Exhibitions (2007-ongoing), Reprise (2011-ongoing) and the Exhibitions to Hear Read” (2010-on going.)

His recent exhibitions include A Retrospective of Closed Exhibitions, Kunsthalle Fribourg (2016) and The Exhibition of a Dream, Gulbenkian Foundation (2017). He directed The exhibition of a film–an exhibition as a feature film for cinemas. Copeland edited the critically acclaimed anthology and manifest publication Choreographing Exhibitions, and in 2017 the radical anthology The Anti-Museum.
