Remai Modern is excited to announce its first web commission, My validation through my association by the internationally-renowned British artist Ryan Gander.

In association with its pre-launch program, Remai Modern is inviting artists to realize original projects exclusively for online viewing. On the first day of every month, work by a new artist will appear on Remai Modern’s homepage. Past commissions will remain accessible in the online archive. Through these commissions, the museum considers its website as an extension of its physical space and onsite program. Mobile and experimental, this online gallery allows for direct, personal encounters with art while connecting artists and audiences across the globe.

Ryan Gander is considered one of the most prolific and interesting artists of our time. His conceptual practice is stimulated by questions, by experimentation, by mystery, as well as by the possibilities of everything.

In 2014 the Frederick Mulder Foundation in London donated 23 Pablo Picasso ceramics to Remai Modern, together with a chair from the Madoura pottery in Valluaris, France, where Picasso produced his best-known ceramics.

My validation through my association, 2016, is a publicly available Twitter feed from the perspective of Picasso’s chair, written by a ghostwriter employed to give the inanimate object a life.

The web commissions are curated by Gregory Burke, Executive Director & CEO, and Sandra Guimarães, Director of Programs & Chief Curator at Remai Modern.
