The opening of the exhibition Vincent Fecteau, scheduled for Saturday, April 3, 2021, has been postponed once again against the background of the prevailing pandemic. As soon as it becomes clear when the retrospective of this internationally celebrated artist, developed especially for Kassel, will open, we will let you know and organize a physical or digital press tour.
Until then, the Fridericianum will be offering a versatile digital program on its online platforms. This will include a short, digital introduction to the exhibition by Moritz Wesseler, Director of the Fridericianum, which is now available on our website. A studio talk between Vincent Fecteau and Jordan Stein (curator, San Francisco) is currently being produced in San Francisco. In addition, Bruce Hainley (writer, Los Angeles) and Michael Lobel (professor of art history at Hunter College and The Graduate Center of the City University of New York) will discuss Fecteau’s work in the inaugural episode of the Fridericianum’s new podcast.
We will also be showing a video interview with Alexandra Bircken that explores her project Top down / Bottom up. This will focus on both the conceptualization and production process of the popular outdoor sculptures, which can still be viewed while the Fridericianum is closed.
More information will follow shortly and will be available on the Fridericianum’s website and social media channels.
