The CCA Kunsthalle is very pleased to present Matter of Choi ces\; a group show curated by Patricia Asbaek.

\n

The exhibition shows a very personal selection of works that have been picked among the highlig hts of the Art Foundation Mallorca Collection\, recent donations to the CCA Collection as well as a few works from Patricia Asbaek’s own private colle ction.

\n

Matter of Choices is an eclectic exhibition\, in the sense t hat it shows a wide range of carefully selected works from a variety of art ists\, with different styles and elements\, combined in an extraordinary wa y. It includes everything from artists such as Michael Elmgreen &\; Inga r Dragset\, who often reconfigure the familiar and unquestioned with subver sive humour and characteristic wit\, but at the same time address serious c ultural concerns\, to Jonathan Meese who has spread his practice over almos t every conceivable medium and is not afraid of evoking vastly different at mospheres\, explorations\, and historical periods.

\n

The exhibition r eflects upon artworks that have had an extraordinary impact on Patricia Asb aek\, and have touched her in a significant way\, both aesthetically and pe rceptually. Striking power\, passionate messages\, and remarkable new appro aches to art are values that have been the background for Patricia Asbaek’s selection for this exhibition. Based on 30 years of experience in the art world\, it may precisely be this subjectivity that gives rise to other view er’s susceptibility in regards to the artworks on display.

\n
