Abstract (English)

"Identity is an exhibition that charts the emergence and proliferation of graphic identity since the turn of the twentieth century, with particular reference to contemporary art institutions - museums, galleries, and so-called alternative spaces.
The period since the 1960s in particular ha seen significant shifts in the perceived role of contemporary art in society, as well as the impact organizations displaying art have economic and political infrastructures (and vice versa).
The exhibition centers on a three-part projection that functions as part informational film, part minimalist cartoon. This audio-visual essay uses three case studies -- London's Tate, the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris -- as coordinates from which to plot a broader landscape. Looking at the evolution of their 'brands' over the last fifty years, the film projects how art organizations negotiate their positions on a spectrum of ideology and economy. " -- book flap
