We are very pleased to announce that Gardar Eide Einarsson's Not Yet Titled (Traffic cones) (2011) and Liberty Forever (2015) are now part of the permanent collection at The Modern.
In Gardar Eide Einarsson's works, the ideas of personal liberty, belonging, inclusion/ exclusion, and propaganda are explored with a view to what role culture plays in ideological systems and how artists and art institutions both are implicated in the dominant structures while at the same time perhaps offering a way around and outside them. He addresses this subject matter through diverse media such as installations, paintings, sculptures, etc. in a deadpan and often humorous way and with an awareness of the institutional context of contemporary art.
On view now. New Acquisitions, The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth.
