Mathieu Copeland (b. 1977, lives in London) has been developing a practice seeking to subvert the traditional role of exhibitions and to renew our perceptions of these. Amongst many others, he co-curated the exhibition ‘VOIDS, A Retrospective’ at the Centre Pompidou in Paris and the Kunsthalle in Bern, and edited the anthology ‘VOIDS’. He curated ‘A Choreographed Exhibition’ at the Kunsthalle St Gallen & Ferme du Buisson, ‘Soundtrack for an Exhibition’ at the Musee d’Art Contemporain Lyon. He curated and initiated the series ‘A Spoken Word Exhibitions’, ‘Reprise’ and the ‘Exhibitions to Hear Read’ – three volumes so far, all recently at the ICA in Philadelphia this February 2012. Forthcoming exhibition include ‘Phill Niblock – a retrospective’ (Fall 2012), ‘A Film’s Exhibition’ (Fall 2012), and upcoming publications include ‘Gustav Metzger – writings, letters, conferences and interviews 1953 – 2012’ and ‘Choreographing an Exhibition’, to be published in the spring of 2012.
