New Perspectives Tour of “Goshka Macuga: Time as Fabric” at the New Museum
In the exhibition “Goshka Macuga: Time as Fabric,” Macuga’s recent large-scale tapestries and installations represent an accumulation of archival research, institutional histories, and narratives of art-making and the use of images throughout time. During this month’s New Perspectives tour, we will focus on Macuga’s The Nature of the Beast (2009), an early tapestry that raises questions about the role of art in global politics through the mobilization of Pablo Picasso’s iconic painting Guernica (1937). We will discuss Macuga’s use of Guernica in order to consider how an image may amass power and changing interpretations throughout time and across mediums.
