Turnovers / Conversation with the artists
Salon of the Museum of Contemporary Art, 14 Pariska street
Friday 18 July, 2014 at 6 pm
Presentation on the collaboration between MoCaB and Tate Modern and discussion of the two exhibitions, Inverted House and Turnovers, accompanied by an artist talk.
The conversation will be moderated by curators Hannah Dewar and Una Popović and will be in English.
The exhibition Turnovers will be open from 17 July to 28 September and is the second part of a collaboration between Tate Modern, London and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Belgrade. This exhibition is a continuation of the first part of the project – the exhibition Inverted House by Tina Gverović and Siniša Ilić, which was presented in the Project Space at Tate Modern, London between 22 November 2013 and 13 April 2014. As part of this exhibition in Belgrade, the work of British artist Ben Cain will also be presented alongside the artists mentioned above.
The project takes the similarities that exist between both museums – in spite of the clear economic and social differences between the two countries – as a starting point, exploring the role of the museum in today’s society. The building of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Ušće, new Belgrade, has now been closed to the public for seven years for renovation works. As an historic institution and the physical home of an extensive collection, this raises important questions about the exhibition of works and access to public art education, as well as the survival of contemporary art in Serbia today. Tate Modern, on the other hand, is a world renowned institution with around five million visitors each year. An established and widely recognisable brand, the circumstances – both economic and social – in which it operates are very different.
The exhibition Turnovers at the Salon of the Museum of Contemporary Art explores the fundamental components of the museum – the collection, the audience and the building – as a thematic continuation of Inverted House shown at Tate Modern. Alongside elements adapted from the project in London, the exhibition incorporates three new works produced for the occasion: a film, Chameleon, and a sound installation, Houses On The Move, made by Ilić and Gverović in Belgrade during May and June 2014; and Short Falls by Cain, a multimedia work that takes the iconic eight-cubed floor plan of the Museum of Contemporary Art as the basis for a sculpture, a short video and a series of photographs.
