“Theories on Forgetting” maps evolutions of cultural symbolism through the work of 18 contemporary artists. Questioning how popular images originate, gain importance, obsolesce, and renew, the exhibition surveys a broad range of artworks with source amnesia: strange relics and personal figments reveal the emergence of new languages fertilized by previous ones. These diverse cultural apparitions engage individual and collective memory as subject, action, and material.
Artists: Mark Flood, Piero Golia, Douglas Gordon, Mark Hagen, John Houck, Christian Jankowski, Oliver Laric, Ana Mendieta, Cady Noland, Richard Phillips, Sterling Ruby, Thomas Ruff, Ed Ruscha, Analia Saban, Max Hooper Schneider, Taryn Simon, Mungo Thomson, Jonas Wood
