Mostly West: Franz West and Artist Collaborations


The first exhibition by the great Austrian artist Franz West (1947-2012) of works made in collaboration with other leading visual artists, including Douglas Gordon, Marina Faust, Sarah Lucas, Albert Oehlen, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Rudolf Polanszky, Andreas Reiter Raabe, Anselm Reyle and Heimo Zobernig. Mostly West encapsulates West's belief in art as a participatory activity and the juxtaposition of various artistic viewpoints through collaboration. His hugely influential Adaptives, early sculptural works begun in 1974, were made to be held and adapted to the human body. Later works also invited participation and interaction, including furniture and his brightly-coloured aluminium sculptures which were the subject of Meeting Points, an outdoor exhibition held at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh in 2002. Throughout his life, West combined works from different periods to produce new readings, often integrating works by other artists with his own. The exhibition is curated by Ines Turian, Chair of the Franz West Foundation.
