Institutional Critique Today
‘Image Power’ brings together works of twenty international contemporary artists that question the role of art in an image saturated world.
The Frans Hals Museum proudly presents the exhibition trilogy The Art of Critique. This series of exhibitions reflects on Institutional Critique, an art movement that surfaced in the late 1960’s and again in the 1990’s.
Practices labelled as Institutional Critique take the institutions that make up the art world (museums, galleries, art fairs) as the topics of their art.
‘Image Power’, the first chapter of the exhibition trilogy The Art Of Critique, is a group exhibition featuring twenty international artists whose work questions the role of art in our image driven age of social media and political unrest.
