Christoph Meier

artist(s): Christoph Meier
curator(s): Kevin Muhlen

Casino Luxembourg has invited the Austrian artist Christoph Meier for a major solo exhibition from 5 May to 9 September 2018. With his site-specific work Meier questions the nature of the artwork but also largely its relation to the architectural space and the public. Rather than occupying an exhibition space with his artworks Christoph Meier creates a new space for various encounters.

Casino having recently rearranged it's exhibition spaces, moving away from the 'white cubes' to a more open exhibition architecture, hosting an exhibition with such a strong emphasis on disappearing boundaries and the shift of exhibition paradigms is a unique opportunity to present a cutting-edge artistic position such as Christoph Meiers', whilst pursuing the exploration of the experimental exhibition space.

Born in 1980, Christoph Meier lives and works in Vienna. Besides having a Diploma in Architecture from the Technical University Vienna, Meier studied sculpture at the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts (with Heimo Zobernig) and the Glasgow School of Art. In addition to numerous exhibitions in Europe and the United States, he has been publishing since 2009 the artist-zine edition Black Pages (in collaboration with Ute Müller and Nick Oberthaler) and operates since 2016, with Hugo Canoilas and Nicola Pecoraro the exhibition space Guimarães in Vienna. Last year his personal exhibition C & O was presented at the Kunstverein in Hamburg. It will be presented in September 2017 at the KIOSK in Ghent and in May 2018 at the Casino Luxembourg - Forum d'art contemporain.

A catalogue Christoph Meier C & O has been published by Kunstverein in Hamburg, Bettina Steinbrügge; KIOSK, Wim Waelput; Casino Luxembourg, Kevin Muhlen. Mousse Publishing, Milan, 2016.
