This fall, the Musée cantonal des Beaux-Arts of Lausanne presents the first solo exhibition devoted to the work of Esther Shalev-Gerz in Switzerland. It offers a retrospective view of the artist’s work through her slide projections, photographs, video installations and documentation of works in public space.
For more than twenty years, Esther Shalev-Gerz has participated in contemporary art debates relating to questions of place, democracy, cultural memory and citizenship. Her practice is foundational in its analysis of the construction and perceptions of individual and collective memory, the persistent significance of commemoration and remembrance.
