Conversation with Zachary Formwalt and Guiding Tour

Salon of the MoCAB
February 7, 2015 at 1pm

This solo exhibition "Three Exchanges" is a result of collaboration between Stedelijk Museum Bureau Amsterdam and The Museum of Contemporary Art Belgrade.

Curators of the exhibition: Jelle Bouwhuis (SMBA) and Zoran Erić (MSUB). 

In three recent video installations, Zachary Formwalt focuses on the architecture of the new OMA-designed Shenzhen Stock Exchange, and the Amsterdam stock and commodities exchange designed at the end of the nineteenth century by the socialist architect, H.P. Berlage. The three installations dig into a fundamental issue surrounding financial trade: whereas financial transactions seem to dictate our economy and thus their effects can be felt everywhere, the activity of trading itself has become increasingly remote, unavailable for any kind of actual human encounter. The architecture of the stock exchanges offers a pretext to a profound investigation into the limitations of photography to represent capital and into the interrelationships between financial capitalism and image making.

Zachary Formwalt (1979, Georgia, U.S.A.) studied at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and at Northwestern University, Evanston, Illinois. In 2008 and 2009 he was a resident at the Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten in Amsterdam. He has had solo exhibitions at the Kunsthalle in Basel (2009), ar/ge kunst Galerie Museum in Bolzano (2011), Casco—Office for Art, Design and Theory, Utrecht (2010) and Kiosk, Ghent (2013). He has participated in group exhibitions such as 'Monumentalism' at Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam (2010), 'End of Money' in Witte de With, Rotterdam (2011), 'Homo Economicus' at Cabinet Gallery, London (2012) and in Steirischer Herbst, Graz: 'Liquid Assets' (2013). His work is held by several institutional collections, such as the Netherlands Photo Museum and the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam.

Zachary Formwalt –Three Exchanges in SMBA is the third exhibition in the series of the Stedelijk Museum's Global Collaborations programme.

Before coming to MoCAB the exhibition “Three Stock Exchanges” was presented at SMBA (Stedelijk Museum Bureau Amsterdam) with which our museum established institutional cooperation and exchange in the framework of the programme “Global Collaborations”. After the exhibition by Zachary Formwalt in Belgrade, works by two artists from Serbia, Vladimir Miladinović and Nikola Radić Lucati, will be showcased at the exhibition at SMBA starting from April 18, 2015.

The exhibition will run from March 22 in the Salon of the MoCAB in 14 Pariska St., every working day from 12:00 to 20:00, except Tuesdays. 

The project is supported by Mondriaan Fund and Stichtung Ammodo.
