Documenta 14 has announced University of Chicago faculty and alumni are among the over 160 international artists showcasing work at the 163-day exhibition of contemporary art that takes place every five years in Kassel, Germany, and for the first time in Athens. Participating artists with UChicago affiliations include William Pope.L and David Schutter (MFA’03), associate professors in the Department of Visual Arts (DoVA), and Dan Peterman (MFA’86), a DoVA alumnus.

The 14th edition of documenta opened on April 8 in Athens, extending throughout the city to more than 40 public institutions, squares, cinemas, universities, and libraries. The exhibition runs through July 16, 2017 in Athens and from June 10–September 17, 2017 in Kassel, Germany.

Pope.L's sound performance work Whispering Campaign takes place in both Athens and Kassel and involves 12 performers, 26 sound installations, and 9,438 hours of sound running 24/7 for 200 days. The Richard and Mary L. Gray Center for Arts and Inquiry is a major supporter of Pope.L's work in documenta 14.

Schutter’s quasi-monochrome gray paintings and drawings will be on view in Kassel. Peterman unveiled a two-part project, Athens Ingot Project (Copper) (2017), currently on view at the National Museum of Contemporary Art (EMST) in Athens.

Jessica Stockholder, Raymond W. & Martha Hilpert Gruner Distinguished Service Professor, and Chair in the Department of Visual Arts said, “It is lovely for all of us to see our colleagues and alumni in the Department of Visual Arts garner this kind of recognition, and we all share in the expanded dialogue that such an international show engenders. I am proud to be part of this community and department working alongside such great colleagues.”
