Antonis Pittas, Road to Victory at Hordaland Art Centre, Bergen

January 27, 2017

The exhibition emerged out of the art centre’s collaboration with Pittas and Mousse Publishing on the forthcoming book by the same name, which is a conceptual publication that extends Pittas’s artistic practice as well as an anthology of essays reflecting on his work and its various contexts. Together the book and exhibition present an artist-initiated re-reading of the seminal work of exhibition designer, Herbert Bayer, whose 1942 exhibition Road to Victory at the Museum of Modern Art in New York presented a highly aestheticised and celebratory representation of the American involvement in the Second World War.

Exhibition continues until 9 April

Book launch and discussion: March 30, 7–9pm, with Antonis Pittas, Galit Eilat and Steven ten Thije, moderated by Anthea Buys
