  • “A Year at the Stedelijk: Tino Sehgal”

    Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam
    Museumplein 10
    January 1 - December 31

    Curated by Beatrix Ruf and Martijn van Nieuwenhuyzen

    Extending his durational approach to the exhibition of choreographed situations, Tino Sehgal has conceived with the curators a retrospective that will unfold over the course of one calendar year. Twelve of the artist’s pieces that were designed for the museum context, rather than the fair or theater, will be presented in succession; one work will be performed each month in a different gallery. Demanding a substantial commitment from viewers who want to see the entire retrospective, this show nevertheless promises a richer engagement with each work than might a conventional survey. The plan is to begin with Instead of allowing some thing to rise up to your face dancing bruce and dan and other things, 2000, a work from the Stedelijk’s collection, and thence the institution will maintain a discussion with the artist regarding the show’s unfurling shape.
