Last Tango is pleased to announce its grand re-opening in new buildings at Gasometerstrasse 30/32 on August 24th, 2018. For its first exhibition Last Tango is steering away from its usual program of two-person exhibitions and is presenting a multi-generational group show including works by Swiss and international artists. With a total of six separate spaces, each space contains paired works by two artists.
Chérif & Silvie Defraoui / Manon Wertenbroek
Jason Dodge / Bruno Jakob
Per Kirkeby / Katja Schenker
Vittorio Santoro / Simon Starling
Gregory Hari / Samson Young
Michael Etzensperger / Christoph Hefti
Fluid in its approach the exhibition Double Take features thematic juxtapositions, continuities and ruptures with many works pertaining to the potential of the misidentified, misheard and the ambiguous space of the inexpressible. The exhibition explores subjects such as the limitations of language, the act of muting, subjectivity, immateriality, montage and hybridity, the process of sedimentation as well as historical memory. A double take is a moment oftentimes depicted in cartoons when a character glances at something without much reaction, turns away, and then, in a moment of realization, snaps their head around with a big expression.
After five months of renovation the former garage, bicycle workshop and illegal club has been made exhibition ready. Curators Linda Jensen and Arianna Gellini will develop an exhibition programme of one year and a half until the fixed leasehold ends.
