On the occasion of ‘Panza Collection Archives’, please join us for a conversation between artist and collector, Madelon Vriesendorp and Artistic Director of the Serpentine Galleries, Hans Ulrich Obrist.
Giuseppe and Giovanna Panza were passionate collectors who, over a period of more than fifty years, built an extraordinary contemporary art collection including works by minimal and conceptual artists from both America and Europe. The discussion will explore Madelon Vriesendorp’s approach to collecting as a creative activity.
Hans Ulrich Obrist is an art curator, critic, art historian and Artistic Director at the Serpentine Galleries, London.
Madelon Vriesendorp’s work has been exhibited in the Serpentine Gallery, London; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; Aedes Architekturforum, Berlin; Barbican Centre, London; Canadian Centre for Architecture, Montreal; Museum of Modern Art, New York; the V&A, London; Lucy Mackintosh Gallery, Lausanne, among others. Her one-man show of paintings, ‘The World of Madelon Vriesendorp’ – for which a book of the same name was published in 2008 – at the Architectural Association in London, went on to Berlin, Basel and the Venice Biennale of Architecture. She received an Honorable Fellowship from the RIBA in 2009. Most recently she participated in the postcard project for Frieze, the Istanbul ‘Are we Human’ Biennale, and the Colombo Biennale in 2016.
