TONY COKES's works are currently on view in A Model, a group exhibition at Mudam Luxembourg.
The Grand Duke Jean Museum of Modern Art (Mudam Luxembourg)
3 Park Drai Eechelen, 1499 Clausen
February 9 - September 8, 2024
A Model is an exhibition that proposes a reflection on the role of the museum at the beginning of the twenty-first century. It reaffirms the need to think of the institution as a living place, sensitive and receptive to contemporary debates. A Model considers the possibilities that arise when museum collections are reimagined as active and performative environments. A Model brings together more than thirty artists, some to conceive new commissions, some inspired by and in dialogue with works from the collection. And A Model wants to start a conversation about the museum you would like Mudam to be.
The exhibition was inspired in part by artist and activist Palle Nielsen’s project The Model – A Model for a Qualitative Society. First presented at the Moderna Museet in Stockholm in 1968, Nielsen’s exhibition wanted to open the museum by proposing an adventure playground open to all children.
This exhibition is the second chapter of A Model, a three-part project that unfolds from 1 December 2023 to 8 September 2024. It follows A Model: Prelude – Rayyane Tabet. Trilogy and will be concluded by A Model: Epilogue – Jason Dodge. Tomorrow, I walked to a dark black star.
