During The Vanished Reality, Modern Art Oxford's final KALEIDOSCOPE exhibition of 2016, Maria Loboda (b. 1979, Krakow) will create a brand-new site-specific sculptural installation for the Upper Gallery - a unique 19th century space with a high ceiling, pitched roof and large windows.
Loboda was inspired by her visits to the Ashmolean and Pitt Rivers Museums in Oxford and is fascinated by the ways in which we classify knowledge and build narratives to understand the world around us. The collaboration with Modern Art Oxford will enable Loboda to produce a thrilling work on a scale not yet seen in any of her previous exhibitions.
Loboda’s unique pages in the 50th anniversary publication are minimalist, focusing on her interests in language, communication and code. In return for your £60 donation you can own this signed limited-edition print which has been adapted exclusively from these pages.
The publication celebrates Modern Art Oxford’s 50 years from its origins as a grass roots, artist-led initiative to a champion of international contemporary art. Help us pay homage to the gallery's original founding principles of innovation, experimentation, and the nurturing of artistic talent by supporting the campaign today and securing these memories for future generations.
Loboda has exhibited widely across Europe and the US, with solo shows in New York, Dusseldorf, São Paulo and London. In 2012 she was awarded the Edward Steichen art award for New York City, Luxembourg, and was commissioned for an original work in 2013 by Frieze Projects NY.
