Tino Sehgal

This summer in Saskatoon, Remai Modern presents a cross-section of works by internationally acclaimed artist Tino Sehgal.

Remai Modern presents three works that span the breadth of Sehgal‘s practice: Yet untitled, This Situation (solo) and This Success/This Failure. The artist has also curated a selection of sculpture from Remai Modern’s collection, on view in the museum’s atrium and Connect Gallery.

For the past two decades, Sehgal has developed an acclaimed body of work that redirects the museum experience into one of conversations, ideas, exchange, and relationships. His works are realized through a choreography of many people and relations, moving towards an experience that is embodied and social.

“As we emerge from an extended period of isolation into a moment of upheaval and uncertainty, many feel anxious and overwhelmed, with our social experiences frequently being virtual, disembodied and passive. Live art offers a moment to slow down, to re-engage with the body and connect with people and ideas,” said Troy Gronsdahl, Curator of Performance and Public Practice.

This is the first time the artist’s work is being presented in western Canada. The exhibition is on view from July 16 to September 4.

Tino Sehgal is represented by Marian Goodman Gallery in North America.
