Teresa Hubbard & Alexander Birchler

Grant holders in Stockholm 15 May - 31 July 2017

Teresa Hubbard
(Irish/ American/ Swiss, born in Dublin, Ireland) and Alexander Birchler (Swiss, born in Baden, Switzerland) have been working collaboratively in video, photography and sculpture since 1990. Their work invites suggestive, open-ended reflections on place and cinema and is "propelled by the artists' fascination with the open circuits of social life, memory, and history that sit just outside the frame of moving images."(1) Interweaving hybrid forms of storytelling, their work explores "the ways film's past-tense fictions permeate real geographies in the present."(2)  Hubbard grew up in Australia and later attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, and the MFA program at Yale University School of Art, New Haven, Connecticut. Birchler grew up in Switzerland and studied at the Academy of Art and Design Basel and the University of Art and Design, Helsinki, Finland. They began collaborating as artists-in-residence at the Banff Centre for the Arts and later completed graduate degrees at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Halifax, Canada.

Teresa Hubbard / Alexander Birchler's work is held in numerous public collections including the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden at the Smithsonian, Washington D. C.; Kunsthaus Zurich, Switzerland; Kunstmuseum Basel, Switzerland; Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth; Museum of Fine Arts Houston; Yokohama Museum of Art, Japan and the Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich, Germany. Their exhibition history includes venues such as the Venice Biennial; the Tate Museum Liverpool; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago; Reina Sofia Museum Madrid; Kunsthaus Graz; Mori Museum Tokyo; Hamburger Bahnhof, Museum für Gegenwart, Berlin and the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin.
