Isa Genzken: The American Room
Thursday, January 9, 2014, 1:30 p.m.
The René d' Harnoncourt Exhibition Galleries, sixth floor
In this session, take a closer look at how German artist Isa Genzken’s room-sized sculptural installation Der Amerikanische Raum (The American Room) investigates concepts of nationalism, globalism, and consumerism through the arrangement of a multitude of found objects, and their significance as cultural symbols.
In conjunction with the exhibition Isa Genzken: Retrospective
Gallery Sessions, impromptu interactions facilitated by Museum educators that explore the creative process, art history, and the experience of art, take place daily in select galleries. Groups meet in the galleries noted on the schedule. Gallery Sessions are free with Museum admission. No registration is required.
Sign language–interpreted Gallery Sessions are held every fourth Sunday of the month at 1:30 p.m. FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.
