For its 4th installment, Bread and Jam will bring together the past and present. 9 contemporary artists have been invited to invited to make or present work in response to international artists active in the 1950s, 60s, 70s.
From 70s Slovakian conceptual artist Julius Koller working under the Soviet regime to Zero artist Heinz Mack working in post war Germany, the exhibition focuses on artists, who by going against current practices, presented a new way of working and looking that challenged the art establishment. Whether faced with repressive political regimes or critical societal expectations and often with limited means, innovation is what unites them. Homes and apartments were key exhibition venues for a number of these artists and it seems fitting that these works should be displayed once again in this setting.
Bread and Jam offers artists a rare opportunity to experiment and play in an alternative space without constraints. By connecting art practices that span different continents and generations, Bread and Jam IV: Modern Mirror offers the chance to work and create with and around modern masters to extend their practice and challenge their process. This dialogue hopes to assert the importance of looking back to look forward.
