Annette Südbeck: “The good, the bad, and the ugly”

Thursday, Jul 15, 2021, 7 pm – 9 pm

Ranging from book objects to collections of materials, fetish, exhibition commentaries, and artistic gestures—Vincent Fecteau’s artist’s books are rich in variation and multi-layered in their conception and therefore offer an excellent basis for approaching his artistic practice. Movements of encircling, circumscribing, digressing, and explorations of his surroundings characterize Fecteau’s work as much as this lecture, which is devoted to the artist’s handling of materiality, the shallowness of his forms, the penetration of space and sculpture, and his thoroughly humorous pop-cultural references.

Annette Südbeck studied art and German language and literature in Braunschweig. She completed her doctorate under Prof. Michael Glasmeier on wall drawing as an exhibition medium using the examples of Sol LeWitt, Hilka Nordhausen, and David Tremlett. From 1998–2001 she worked as an art educator at various museums, including the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen, Düsseldorf, the Lehmbruck Museum, Duisburg, and the Nationalgalerie, Berlin. She has worked as a curator since 2001. In 2014, Südbeck became managing director of the Vienna Secession, where she has since realized exhibitions with Kerry James Marshall, R.H. Quaytman, Manfred Pernice, Alexandra Bircken, Emily Wardill, Ericka Beckman, and in 2016, Vincent Fecteau, among many others.
