The State Hermitage Museum in the City of St. Petersburg
June 28 – October 31, 2014
Nicole Eisenman is featured in Manifesta 10, curated by Kasper König.
The Manifesta Biennial was inspired by the changing European constellation of 1989–91, and was initiated in order to build upon the increased artistic exchange made possible by these events. Now Manifesta will look back and take stock, introducing contemporary art to the Hermitage. The uniqueness of the museum—a palace of extraordinary collections with a continuous history of defending culture, regardless of times and circumstances—lends itself in a most unusual way to looking at varied moments in art history (local and global, recent and ancient). MANIFESTA 10 will critically explore gaps, and propose how contemporary art can offer a language to read them against the complexity and concerns of our times.
