Cummings, Neil
The artists Marysia Lewandowska and Neil Cummings have been working together in London since 1995. In addition to exhibitions, books, and collections they developed teaching materials, videos, and Internet portals. More recent projects deal primarily with the tensions between artists and art institutions, art market and audience. Their works are preceded by long research phases, in which they carry out historical, ethnographic, and sociological investigations in collaboration with art institutions.
Publications and exhibitions (selection):
“Lost Property” (publication, London 1995), “Contents. Tiensevest 31” (CD-ROM, catalogue, 1997); “Pour les Curieux” (exhibition and series of events, Musee d’Art et d’Histoire, Geneva 1998); “Not Hansard: The common wealth” (John Hansard Gallery, Southampton, 2000); “Modern Chairs 1918-1970-2000” (Whitechapel Art Gallery, London 2001); “Capital: Gift” (Tate Modern und The Bank of England Museum, London 2001); “Reprise” (part of the exhibition “Independence”, South London Gallery, 2003); “Enthusiasts” (Centre for Contemporary Art, Warsaw 2004); “Enthusiasm” (Whitechapel Art Gallery London, Kunstwerke Berlin, and Tapies Foundation Barcelona, 2005-2006).
