No Room to Answer: Teresa Hubbard /Alexander Birchler
September 14, 2008 – January 4, 2009
Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth
The Swiss/American artist duo Teresa Hubbard (born 1965 in Dublin, Ireland) and Alexander Birchler (born 1962 in Baden, Switzerland) live and work in Austin, Texas. In a career of more than fifteen years, they have become known for their picturesque, color-saturated photographic series and their deliberately slow-paced video installations, which feature slow pan shots, endless loops, and puzzling plot lines. Starting with their early staged photographs, No Room to Answer presents key works from 1991 to 2008. Their video, Grand Paris Texas, 2008, which had its debut with this exhibition, was commissioned by the Modern Art Museum and is now part of the Museum’s permanent collection (sourced from The Modern Art Museum website).
