A monumental figure working with feminist actions since the 1960s, VALIE EXPORT’s work has redefined the field of performance, expanded cinema, and artistic practice.
MAK Center Los Angeles, Schindler House
VALIE EXPORT centers her body as a provocation to unveil traditionally private discourse through direct interventions in public space. This exhibition, VALIE EXPORT’s first solo presentation in Los Angeles since 2001, reexamines these seminal works within a contemporary lens through the presentation of works from the series Body Configuration. Parallel to the exhibition, a performance program featuring responses by Los Angeles based performance artists is developed by curator Chloe Flores.
