Uncertain States of America - American Art in the Third Millenium
This exhibition is a unique presentation of young and emerging American artists. It consists of more than 120 works by over 40 young artists, and presents a wide spectrum of expressions, from video and film to installations and paintings.
Wishing to provide a picture of the new generation of American artists, the curators have chosen young artists with a new vision. This art can be characterized as narrative and with a clear social and political consciousness. Yet one can also find a wide specter of themes and artistic ‘languages' in the exhibition, which, in addition to extensive multi-media installations, includes a video- and sculpture exhibition, together with a program of performances, a lecture series and an extensive catalogue.
The exhibition was first shown at Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art, fall 2005 and has traveled to Bard College in New York and Serpentine Gallery in London. After Reykjavík it will travel further to Herning in Denmark, Warsaw, Moscow and Beijing.
