We write to inform you of Atul Dodiya’s participation in Documenta 12 between 16 June and 23 September, 2007.
Twelve large works on paper, titled, “Antler’s Anthology” (2003/04) will be displayed at the main exhibition hall of Documenta.
The singular character of this exhibition has been preserved (starting after the Nazi dictatorship). Every 5 years a new director/curator is appointed and the exhibition reinvented, a concept that has been affirmed by the public’s interest. The number of visitors grows each time, with 650,000 recorded for Documenta 11. Held in the city of Kassel in Germany, it is one of the largest and most important art exhibitions.
It is with pleasure that we announce the participation of one of India’s premier artists, Atul Dodiya in this prestigious world art event.
Documenta 12 knows no programmatic statement, no architectural grid with which venue and art are to be treated. Instead, individual solutions are developed that correspond to the Museum Fridericianum, the Neue Galerie and the documenta-Halle. The Crystal Palace is in itself a singular solution. It answers the call for the temporary need for a generous exhibition space, nestled into the Aue. All four buildings are not just spaces for art, they communicate, even put into practice, an idea of a showcase.
