Every year the Swiss Church in collaboration with the Goldsmith College invites first year students from the MFA Curating programme to submit proposals for a curatorial project. The winner project is then exhibited for two weeks at the beginning of March. This year’s winner is Curator Marian Stindt, born in Bochum in 1991. She will show ‘Hierophanies’ by artist Patrick Hough. The centre piece of the exhibition is a 3D animation depicting an artefact from the ancient ruins of Palmyra in Syria that was destroyed by so called Islamic State militants in 2015. The art work is a critical examination of iconoclasm in the past and present and reflects the destruction of religious art during the reformation.
Opening night: Thursday, 2 March, 18:00-21:00pm
Public exhibition: 3-17 March, every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 18:00-21:00pm
With this programme the Swiss Church seeks to give young curators an opportunity to exhibit in a central London location.
