I knOw yoU is a dynamic exhibition by a new generation of young European artists. The exhibition takes a fresh look at contemporary art in Europe as a reflection of the exchange and openness that exists between artists working today. I knOw yoU examines the idea of cultural capital; what it means to be European; and ideas at the core of the financial heart of Europe. This group exhibition has an open curatorial approach that allows each artist to nominate another artist of their choosing. Uniquely, this can be from any discipline they connect with (ie. a poet, philosopher, musician, scientist, chef, gardener, artist etc.), either on a collaborative or stand-alone basis, thereby extending the connection point for each artists work.
The artists in I knOw yoU have been selected from graduates of the Städelschule academy in Frankfurt am Main, and reflect the ambitious undertaking made by the school in its development as a leading centre for experimental art practice. Artists in the exhibition include Simon Denny, Simon Fujiwara, Jeppe Hein, Jay & Q, Sergej Jensen, Maria Loboda, Michaela Meise, Tris Vonna-Michell, Nora Schultz, Danh Vo Haegue Yang and Thomas Zipp.
I knOw yoU represents the exciting diversity of approach in contemporary art practice today and is curated by artist, Tobias Rehberger; Nikolaus Hirsch, Director of Städelschule and Rachael Thomas, Senior Curator: Head of Exhibitions, IMMA.
A gallery guide providing information about the artworks and artists featured in the exhibition and a map indicating their location is available to download or from the reception desk at Earlsfort Terrace.
