We want to produce a collaborative publication to celebrate and capture highlights from Modern Art Oxford’s 50 years of critically acclaimed exhibition making.
Fifty internationally celebrated artists have been invited to create unique pages for a landmark publication. Bound together in hardback, they will provide a never-before-seen collection that you can own. Marina Abramović, Dan Graham, Hans Haacke, Louise Lawler, Richard Long, Gustav Metzger and Yoko Ono are among those who have already agreed to contribute to this groundbreaking project.
For most of us, owning artworks by these artists is out of reach, but this book provides a rare opportunity to bring these household names into your home.
Contributions will go towards design, production and printing costs. In return, you can choose from an array of beautiful rewards, including limited-edition prints, postcards featuring highlights from the archive, bespoke contemporary art experiences – including artist studio visits and day trips – and the publication itself.
This limited-edition book can only be produced with the support of generous individuals, so now is your chance to make it happen.
Please help us, we’re only 50 once.
Paul Hobson, director, Modern Art Oxford:
'Can you imagine the sense of fulfilment and pride I had when we brought back Latham's works to the gallery during our 50th anniversary celebrations this year? It is humbling to be at the helm of this powerhouse of contemporary visual culture as we mark our 50th birthday, and to celebrate the impact that artists and their ideas have had on millions of visitors like me over the decades. Our 50th anniversary publication will capture many of these impressions and memories of not only an amazing year of programming, but 50 years of inspirational art.'
