08.11.2019 – 15.03.2020
From November 8th, 2019 to March 15th, 2020 at the Phi Foundation for Contemporary Art, come discover the works of the British artist Phil Collins in a solo exhibition that focuses on the paramount role of music in Collins’s artistic practice.
Since the late 1990s, artist Phil Collins has developed a rich body of work across a range of social practices, communities, and geographies to explore how we participate in and understand popular culture. Over the years, his projects have brought the public closer to the youth of Baghdad, Kosovan-Albanian refugees, and Palestinian teenagers, to name but a few. What is revealed by the artist’s approach, rooted in a meaningful engagement with people and places, is a nuanced complex of relations embedded in the representational regimes and economies that shape everyday existence, sometimes amidst social or political upheaval.
