May # 14

This issue of May considers the reception of Sigmar Polke in France, from the 1980s to the first American retrospective dedicated to his work, which took place at MoMA in New York in April 2014 and subsequently traveled to Europe to the Tate Modern in London and finally to the Museum Ludwig in Cologne in the spring of 2015.

By interesting ourselves specifically with the dynamic that Polke maintained with galleries and the way in which he worked with institutions, we attempted to establish a model of relationships in which artists can remain autonomous. Taking this idea as a starting point, we explored the current dynamic of artist-gallery relations with emerging artists looking to position themselves early on, despite a changed context.
