Ben Rivers

La Triennale di Milano
21 April – 28 May 2017

For the exhibition at Triennale di Milano, Ben Rivers has conceived an environment that forms a reflection on memory. Three screens, each showing a film, are arranged to create an experimental narrative journey where different times and stories are interwoven. The works in the exhibition focus on the idea of collection, in both the institutional and personal context. The things we leave behind, used as guides to piece together the idea of an individual or a group.

The exhibition is a cooperation project with Camden Arts Centre, London; Kunstverein in Hamburg and The Renaissance Society, Chicago. Curated by Lucia Aspesi.
