Altermodern: Tate Triennial by Nicolas Bourriaud
Views Read Edit View history. Sep 17, David Williamson rated it liked it Shelves: Characterized by artists’ cross-border, cross-cultural negotiations; a new real and virtual mobility; the surfing of different disciplines; the use of fiction as an expression of autonomy; concern with sustainable development; and the celebration of difference and singularity, Altermodern works are on the cutting edge of contemporary art and thought.
Kate marked it as to-read Jun 11, Tweet Share Reblog Pin. The fourth instalment of the Tate Triennial promises to evoke debate. That was more or less my mission here. The prologues conquer, in a way that Bourriaud himself could not alone, the intellectual territory left open to criticism by the introduction of the Altermodern as the basis and framework of the exhibition.
One gets the sense though, when speaking with Bourriaud, that he almost courts criticism, that he views debate as the impetus of the show: Altermoderna portmanteau word defined by Nicolas Bourriaudis an attempt at contextualizing art made in today’s global context as a reaction against standardisation and commercialism.
Bourriaud avoids this by choosing artists from a global and macrocosmic viewpoint; he looks at how they function and interrelate within the world and how this is reflected in their work rather than how their work is a direct reflection of their identity.
There is no distinct clarity between the distinction of Modernism and Post Modernism nor of Post Modernism and Post Modernity, as the latter, post or not modernity, is dealing with technology, politics, society as such and Modernism or Post Modernism is the context it is seen in. Luke rated it really liked it Apr 27, Nicolas Bourriaud, art critic, curator of the Triennial, and founding director of the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, is leaving the safety net of post-modernism and embracing the possibilities that exist outside the traditional art-historical framework.

Hachi Spiracle added it Oct 24, This book does have its moments of interest, but it does not have a clear concise point of view or attack. It is also the title of the Tate Britain ‘s fourth Triennial exhibition curated by Bourriaud.
Stephan added it Nov 28, This necessarily opens up the exhibition to a series of tangential discussions that serve to bolster the conceptual arrangement rather than act as a hindrance to its intellectual development.
