Nora Turato

5/9 2024 — 1/8 2025

Opening: 4 September 2024, 7 pm

Kunsthalle Wien is inaugurating an annual commission for a temporary, site-specific artwork for the exterior of the Museumsquartier building. Nora Turato has been commissioned to produce a work that will be on view for a year. Turato’s primary material is language and the power structures involved in spoken and written forms. This new 62-metre, text-based work will stretch around the south-west wall of the building, visible to passers-by as they traverse the outer arc of the Museumsquartier.

Nora Turato (b. 1991, Zagreb) has held solo exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art, New York (2022); Secession, Vienna (2021); Centre Pompidou, Paris; The International Centre of Graphic Arts, Ljubljana (both 2020); Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art, Porto (2019) and Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein (2019).

Her work has also been presented within significant international surveys including the Performa Biennial 2023; New York; Post-Capital: Art and the Economics of the Digital Age at MUDAM Luxembourg and Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Copenhagen (2021 and 2022 respectively); INFORMATION (Today), Kunsthalle Basel and Astrup Fearnley Museet, Oslo (2021 and 2022 respectively); Cleveland Triennial for Contemporary Art (2022) and the Belgrade Biennale (2021).

Turato lives and works in Amsterdam.
