Museums for Cities for People - lecture #4 part II

Jan Hoet & Clive Moloney

Jan Hoet

Clive Moloney, 'Please Refrain from Multitasking', Brant Gallery Masschusetts, 2012

Boston based Irish artist Clive Moloney has been commissioned to make a new work responding to the Belgian curator Jan Hoet. Among Hoet’s most innovative contributions to the development of contemporary curating is the exhibition Chambre d’Amis, 1986, which took place across a series of private homes in Belgium. In this way, Hoet inserted the workings of a public institution directly into the (private) public sphere. A follow-up exhibition, entitled Rendez-Vous, reversed this approach. Moloney inverts functionality in the site of the lecture, inviting the domestic and the flawed to inhabit the space, through a sculpture that isn't quite there.
