Outside Again showing in group exhibition The Street. Where the World is Made, MAXXI, 7 December 2018 – 28 April 2019

MAXXI Museo nazionale delle arti del XXI secolo
Via Guido Reni 4A, 00196 Rome
Curated by Hou Hanru and the curatorial team of MAXXI

In this group exhibition, works of art, architectural projects, photographs, performances, site-specific interventions and videos welcome visitors to a sequence of galleries that form a street dozens of metres long.

Outside Again is a short documentary on Tehching Hsieh’s performances, made by photographer Hugo Glendinning with Adrian Heathfield, and shot in Taipei and New York. Returning to the original sites of his performances many decades later, Hsieh momentarily relives their sense. Some locations have transformed beyond recognition, some have remained relatively unchanged, and others have fallen into dereliction. The occasion of these returns prompts Hsieh to articulate his thoughts on art and its outsides, long durations, and the testing of human limits.
