Receipt of a Magical Agent
April 3–May 24, 2016

Presenting works from the Marieluise Hessel Collection curated by the class of 2016 MA candidates at the Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College

Receipt of a Magical Agent employs the structure of the fairy tale as a curatorial approach, drawing from the morphology devised by 20th century Russian folklorist Vladimir Propp. By utilizing Propp’s method, whereby each tale is divided into 31 essential functions, Receipt of a Magical Agent explores how narratives are woven across an exhibition, between artworks, and within the single work of art.

Some of the artists included in the exhibition are Vito Acconci, Janine Antoni, Richard Artschwager, Matthew Barney, Roger Brown, Sarah Charlesworth, Anne Chu Francesco Clemente, Moyra Davey, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, April Gornik, Kojo Griffin, Walter Hampel, Rachel Harrison, Mona Hatoum, Imi Knoebel, Louise Lawler, Allan McCollum, Tatsuo Miyajima, Bruce Nauman, Ernesto Neto, Blinky Palermo, Allen Ruppersberg, Kiki Smith, Rosemarie Trockel, and Nicola Tyson.
