Outgoing

Those traveling this fall to Korea or Belgium (anybody?) can enjoy a second take on three exhibitions originating here at the Wexner. Following its appearance in Toronto and San Diego, Sadie Benning's Play/Pause double-screen animation, the centerpiece of her 2007 exhibition, is included in the 7th Annual Gwangju Biennale, Annual Report: A Year in Exhibitions, curated by Okwui Enwezor. Also selected for Gwangju is Kerry James Marshall's Rhythm Mastr: Every Beat of My Heart, seen here earlier this year. Both these projects (curated by Media Arts Associate Curator Jennifer Lange, and Education Director Shelly Casto, respectively) were developed through the Residency Award program, and while the presentation of each has been inevitably modified for its appearance in Gwangju (as traveling exhibitions generally are), it's gratifying to be able to set them loose into the larger conversation on global exhibition-making, not to mention affirming the institution's commitment to creative residencies.

Similarly, our 2007 exhibition, Chris Marker: Staring Back, after migrating to New York City and to Zurich, has now settled in at the Museum van Hedendaagse Kunst Antwerpen (MuHKA), where curator Edwin Carels has amplified the show with such rare materials as Marker' seldom-screened Si j'avais quatre dromadaires and a publication with newly-translated texts by the artist. Watch the store for this catalogue as well as the Gwangju Biennale's, both reminders of the salutary fact that there is a world elsewhere. -- Bill Horrigan, Director, Media Arts
