Tender Touches by Renate Bertlmann

Tender Touches by Renate Bertlmann

Tender Touches

18 October – 13 January 2017 | Austrian Cultural Forum London

Exhibition continues until Friday 13 January 2017

Taking its title from a series of works 'Tender Touches', 1976, by avant garde Austrian artist Renate Bertlmann, this exhibition presents works which examine representations of body, sexuality and relationships. The exhibition, curated by Daria Khan, traces its development and transformation from 70s until contemporary artists’ practice. Artworks tackle stereotypes of representation, fetishisation, domesticity, as wells as digitalisation and hybridity of these notions and their forms.

The exhibition features work by:
Renate Bertlmann (1943, Austria)
Friedl vom Gröller/Kubelka (1946, Austria)
Eva Stenram (1976, Sweden)
Zoe Williams (1983, UK)
Julia Zastava (1982, Russia/Austria)

During the private view Zoe Williams will present Village Baroque; a collaboration with musician Vicky Steiri who will play a series of piano interludes accompanied by the serving of fine brandy and a ceremonial gateau throughout the evening.
