‘Foul Matters’

Mathis Altmann @ Swiss Institute, Jun 22 – Jul 24

21 June 2016

Zurich-based artist Mathis Altmann, is presenting solo exhibition Foul Matters at New York’s Swiss Institute, opening June 22 and running to July 24.

As the eighth in the ONE FOR ALL exhibition series —where the gallery hosts an artists’ first institutional solo show in the US —Altmann will produce a newly commissioned body of work specific to the space. For this one, the artist —who more recently presented as part of the Dredgers on the Rail group exhibition at LA’s Freedman Fitzpatrick —will present new sculptures continuing his ongoing “material excavation into the infrastructural ‘guts’ of urban spaces”.  

Also, in commemorating the Swiss Institute’s 30th anniversary, another Swiss artist Roman Signer will present his newly commissioned ‘Pendel (Pendulum)’ performance to open.

See the Swiss Institute website for details.**
