Orpheus Twice
20 September 2013–14 December 2013

An exhibition curated by Vincent Honoré, with Juliette Blightman, Marcel Broodthaers, Jason Dodge, Félix González-Torres, Rodney Graham, David Maljkovic, Bruce McLean, Katrina Palmer, John Stezaker, Danh Vo.

Borrowing its title from a work by Félix González-Torres, Orpheus Twice considers the relationship between artworks and their often fragmented, forgotten, or remote origins and sources. The exhibition explores the particular moment when an absence or a loss turns into an image, in all its multiple meanings. And when an image turns into an absence. Who is Orpheus?

The David Roberts Art Foundation Limited is a registered charity in England and Wales (No. 1119738) and a company limited by guarantee registered in England and Wales (No. 6051439) at 4th Floor Adam House, 1 Fitzroy Square London, W1T 5HE. It is proudly supported by the Edinburgh House Estates group of companies.
