a matter of allure

Is contemporary art’s recurring turn to a material with a rich tradition an attempt to free the precious metal from its historical heritage, from grandeur and pathos? Is the saying “all that glitters is not gold” thus put to a test by transferring or shifting the always sought-after, glittery material to other contexts? The exhibition DORÉ | VERGOLDET | GILDED, curated by Harald F. Theiss, and the accompanying catalogue bring together works of contemporary art that deal with gold as a material and coloring agent and thus reflect the notions of value and symbolic power connected with it.
