Maintenance Art Works 1969â€“1980Â â€“ On show until May 19th 2013
This is the very first comprehensive European solo exhibition of the artistâ€™s earlier work. Originally organized in 1998 by Ronald Feldman Fine Arts gallery in New York, the exhibition presents a body of work spanning over a decade of significant production.
In 1969, following the birth of her first child, Ukeles wrote â€œManifesto for Maintenance Artâ€ as a challenge to the binary systems of opposition that draw the line between art/life, nature/culture, and public/private. The manifesto proposed undoing boundaries that separate the maintenance of everyday life from the role of an artist in society. Ukeles was interested in how artists could use the concept of transference to empower people to act as agents of change and stimulate positive community involvement toward ecological sustainability.
