William and Bettye Nowlin Professor of Studio Art Teresa Hubbard and Associate Professor of Practice Alexander Birchler, Co-Area Heads of Photography & Media at the Department of Art and Art History, will present their 2017 Venice Biennale piece, Flora, at the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver from September 20, 2019 – April 5, 2020.
"Touted as one of the most emotionally engaging exhibitions at the 2017 Venice Biennale, Flora will travel to MCA Denver, where the original exhibition will be complemented by additional material providing insight into Flora Mayo’s childhood and early adult years in Denver," reads the exhibition description from MCA Denver. "It will include a double-sided film, a recreation of Mayo’s lost bust of Giacometti (captured in the one photograph that launched the artists’ research), a photograph to accompany this sculpture, as well as additional photographs and letters that piece together her early life in Denver, thus connecting her story to the place of the exhibition."
The MCA Denver exhibition of Flora was curated by MCA Director Nora Burnett Abrams.
Hubbard and Birchler's work will also be shown in two group museum exhibitions this fall, including At Night. Encounters between Dream and Reality atSammlung Goetz at the Haus der Kunst on view from July 12, 2019 – January 12, 2020 and an exhibition at the National Museum of Art, Osaka(NMAO) on view August 27 – December 8, 2019. The NMAO exhibition, NMAO Collection with Alberto Giacometti II is designed to commemorate the museum’s acquisition of Alberto Giacometti’s (1901-1966) sculpture Yanaihara I (1960-1961).
