Jimmie Durham 1994 - 2012
Jimmie Durham moved to Europe in 1994 and has lived ever since in Brussels, Lisbon, Marseille, Rome and Berlin, where he is presently based (2012). Since then, Durham has been working with a series of projects focusing on themes such as architecture and national narratives. Stone has also been strongly present in Durham’s work as a material as well as a tool, often as an anti-architectural and anti-monumental statement.
He has continued exhibiting worldwide, also taking part in major events such as the Venice Biennale and will exhibit once more at Documenta in Kassel, Germany, in the summer of 2012. In May 2012 Durham’s work is presented in his largest retrospective to this date at the M HKA in the exhibition Jimmie Durham. A Matter of Life and Death and Singing.
