KUB Billboards 2018
The billboards along Bregenz’s Seestrasse, the town’s busiest road, are a fixture of Kunsthaus Bregenz’s program. During 2018, they will be completely in female hands – four young artists have been invited to each show a series of seven images in public space. The year will begin with Flaka Haliti, born in Pristina, Kosovo, and a graduate of the renowned Städelschule in Frankfurt am Main. In the era of digital imagery, Haliti’s work revolves around such romantic ciphers as clouds, moons, and love letters. Two other artists, Lili Reynaud Dewar and Alicia Frankovich, will be presenting emotional states in interior spaces and performances. Maeve Brennan, born in London in 1990, is seeking the origins of caring and nurturing in geology and archeology as well as the value of objects. The Billboards, in juxtaposition to the large-scale solo exhibitions at Kunsthaus Bregenz, ensure that alternative perceptions, new types of imagery, and current issues are also addressed and made accessible to a wide public.
