Manifesta Journal, MJ #9 History in the Present, www.manifestajournal.org

“Exhibitions are, by definition, ephemeral. They experience time dramatically. While the works displayed are usually destined to endure, the exhibition itself is condemned to disappear. From a historical perspective, the most authentic locus of an exhibition is arguably in the viewer’s memory. Not all exhibitions, however, are granted a place in history.

Is it true that the life of a work of art is phenomenologically autonomous from its contextual presentation in an exhibition? Is the exhibition a self-sufficient text that inevitably presumes that, after the exhibition, each work loses the particular meaning it had in the exhibition’s chain of signifiers?

And is it really true that the locus of the show is properly in the present (or in any actual time, for that matter)? Perhaps the temporality of an exhibition is more complex. Today, artistic sensibility seems imprisoned in the present, experiencing nostalgia for the future and dwelling on potentialities of the past. One of the paradoxical tasks of the contemporary curator might thus be to present a historical retrospective of context-dependent art, and thereby to defend the radicality of archival artworks.”
