The exhibition "Display of the Centuries. Frederick Kiesler and Contemporary Art" at the Austrian Cultural Forum New York investigates how art is made and subsequently presented and tackles the highly topical question of how artists can develop presentation strategies to compensate for the omnipotence of the curator in today's commercialized art scene. Curator Peter Bogner assembles the works of 17 artists that were influenced by Frederick Kiesler's genius and his uncanny understanding of the fact that the 21st century more than ever needs new modes of creating, seeing, comprehending, and discerning varied realities.
