Doré | Vergoldet | Gilded
recontextualser l'attrait de l'or | von neuen Allianzen und Verschmelzungen | a matter of allure
- Focuses on gold as a material, colour, symbol and power in the works of internationally renowned contemporary artists
Is contemporary art’s recurring turn to a material with a rich tradition an attempt to free the precious metal from its historical heritage, from grandeur and pathos? Is the saying “all that glitters is not gold” thus put to a test by transferring or shifting the always sought-after, glittery material to other contexts? The exhibition Doré | Vergoldet | Gilded and accompanying catalogue bring together works of contemporary art that deal with gold as a material and colouring agent and thus reflect the notions of value and symbolic power connected with it.
