PRAES AT BERGEN ASSEMBLY
As part of the Bergen Assembly 2016, PRAXES expands and tests its modular methodology against the framework of the biennial model. Episodically inhabiting different venues throughout Bergen, PRAXES initiates a yearlong material discussion centering on two unassociated artistic practices: LYNDA BENGLIS and MARVIN GAYE CHETWYND.
Starting in February 2016 and running through December 2016, consecutive exhibitions, publications, and events unfold existing works, archival matter, new large-scale commissions, and unrealized proposals.
Co-founded by Rhea Dall and Kristine Siegel, PRAXES Center for Contemporary Art in Berlin (2013-2015) presented four half-year cycles of exhibitions, publications, and events, each revolving around two unassociated artistic practices.
Bergen Assembly 2016 is the second chapter of this investigation.
