New Hanging from 5 February 2016
The permanent collection is the centre piece of every museum. 2016 will see a completely new presentation of the LENTOS collection. New objects will find their way from the depot to the exhibition halls, classic works are put into an unexpected, challenging new context: a thrilling tour d’horizon across art history, featuring well-known masterpieces, new artistic statements and thrilling encounters.
The LENTOS is committed to an active dialogue with artists. In a tried and proven manner the selection of artworks for the different rooms is left to people not on the museum’s staff. Three rooms of the Permanent Collection are curated by artists, who combine at least one of their own works in their respective rooms with their personal selection from the LENTOS’s holdings. The new presentation of the Collection includes an on-line media artwork.
Featuring Özlem Altin, Verena Dengler, Hans Kupelwieser and ekw14,90
Curators: Elisabeth Nowak-Thaller, Brigitte Reutner, Stella Rollig, Magnus Hofmüller
