Ronald Jones and Elio Montanari



Grazer Kunstverein

Production specifics
Koproduktion steirischer herbst & Grazer Kunstverein

What people are prepared to reveal about themselves is usually governed by accepted forms of covering up. Picking up the leitmotif of steirischer herbst, Grazer Kunstverein will take a closer look at these accepted forms and thus the process of communicative sharing in the exhibition, enabling creative people to engage in a discussion.

The main exhibition is the solo show of Ronald Jones focusing on his works from the late 80s and early 90s. In his works, Jones explores the political potential of objects that, reduced to their form, remain historically and critically charged – and usually relate to isolation and terrorism.

The Members Library will present original documents of the Italian photographer Elio Montanari, who took photographs of artists for more than thirty years – a captivating testimony about the creative act and friendship that affords a glimpse behind the scenes of art practice.
