Rhea Dall is a Danish curator and the incoming Director of Overgaden in Copenhagen, one of the city’s most dexterious institutions for experimental contemporary art. Currently, Dall is based in Norway where she directs UKS (Unge Kunstneres Samfund / Young Artists’ Society) and has organized several exhibitions as a freelance curator, among them the group show Tempo Tempo Tempo at the Kistefos Museum, including work by Ragna Bley, Ane Graff, and Sandra Mujinga. Prior to these engagements, Dall was one of the Artistic Directors of Bergen Assembly 2016 and in 2013 she co-founded PRAXES Center for Contemporary Art, a non-profit institution for international art and research in Berlin, working with artists such as Gerard Byrne, Judith Hopf, and Matt Mullican. Dall has edited and contributed to numerous publications, among others on Wilhelm Sasnal, Nina Beier, and Christina Mackie, and written for a variety of journals including Texte zur Kunst, Frieze, and Mousse.
Ane Graff’s practice is informed by feminist new materialism – a re-thinking of our material reality, in which a process-oriented approach to matter plays an integral part. Her work traces lines between Western intellectual history and how ideas of human exceptionalism and dualism relate to the ecological disasters we face today. Recent shows include the exhibition “Weather Report – Forecasting Future”, shown at the Nordic Pavilion at the 58th Venice Biennale (curated by Piia Oksanen and Leevi Haapala, KIASMA) and Art Encounters Biennial 2019 (curated by Maria Lind & Anca Rujoiu). Upcoming exhibitions include the 2020 Liverpool Biennale (curated by Manuela Moscoso) and the Rhizome/ New Museum/ Stavanger Kunsthall collaboration 7x7. Previous exhibitions include “Soon Enough: Art in Action”, Tensta Konsthall, Stockholm (2018): “Myths of the Marble”, Henie Onstad Kunstsenter, Oslo, and the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia (2017); the 11th Gwangju Biennale “The Eighth Climate (What Does Art Do?)”, Gwangju (2016); and ”Surround Audience -The New Museum Triennial 2015”, NY.
