Teresa Hubbard and Alexander Birchler
Teresa Hubbard and Alexander Birchler are the Swiss/American collaborative team whose work is featured in the Modern’s exhibition No Room to Answer, organized by Andrea Karnes. The exhibition is the duo’s first major survey in an American museum, but their video, photography, and sculpture has been recognized and well received in Europe since 1990, when the couple was still in graduate school at Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. Since that time they have shown extensively, with recent solo exhibitions at venues including the Miami Art Museum, K21 Kunstsammlung Nordhein-Westfalen in Düsseldorf, the Whitney Museum of American Art at Altria, and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Berlin, as well as the Venice and Liverpool biennials. For Tuesday Evenings, Hubbard and Birchler present the thoughts and means by which they produce mesmerizing, even haunting video imagery that captures what has been described for the Liverpool Biennial as the “momentary narrative” of a solitary figure in an architecturally constructed space and time.
