Museum Brandhorst presents its new “Flag Commission” for the opening weekend of “Various Others.” Four flags by the artist Nora Turato will be installed outside the museum.

 

The “Flag Commission” is an opportunity for Museum Brandhorst to bring new artworks outside its walls, into the surrounding neighborhood. Normally used to promote exhibitions, the flags, situated on the corner of Türkenstraße and Theresienstraße, will now be turned over to artists to make original works for the general public. Museum Brandhorst is delighted to continue bringing art to the people of Munich in a way that is playful and accessible.

 

The first artist invited for the “Brandhorst Flag Commission” is Nora Turato. One of the most celebrated artists working with language today, Turato has become an incisive observer of meaning—and its absence—in a linguistic era determined by the rapid pace of online life. Her flags proclaim, “words something you can get from anybody”—an indication of both the abundance and scarcity of language today.

 

The “Flag Commission” was initiated by curator Giampaolo Bianconi. Inviting Turato for the first edition, he comments: “Turato’s use of language and bold graphics have resulted in some of the most engaging and insightful artworks of recent years. It's an honor to have her flags grace the outside of Museum Brandhorst as the inaugural ‘Brandhorst Flag Commission.’”

 

Nora Turato was born in 1991 in Zagreb and lives and works in Amsterdam. Recent solo exhibitions include: Museum of Modern Art, New York (2022); 52 Walker/David Zwirner, New York (2022); Secession, Vienna (2021); MGLC: International Centre of Graphic Arts, Ljubljana (2020); Sammlung Philara, Düsseldorf (2020); Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art, Porto (2019); Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein (2019); and Beursschouwburg, Brussels (2019).

 

For the presentation of the first “Brandhorst Flag Commission” we kindly invite you to a breakfast viewing in the presence of the artist on Saturday, September 10 at 11 am, in conjunction with the opening weekend of “Various Others.”
