Ain't No Mountain High Enough

Ain’t No Mountain High Enough curated by Mari Otberg
December 15, 2021 to February 5, 2022

 

Austria is currently under a nationwide lockdown, but we expect the exhibition to open to the public on December 15, 2021.

The group exhibition “Ain’t no mountain high enough” curated by artist Mari Otberg started in the mountains in the village of Tux high up in the Tyrolean Alps, bringing together 33 contemporary artists from several different countries to address the idea of ‘mountains’ in their work.

Opening December 15 at GALERIE Peter Gaugy, and running through February 5, 2022, the exhibition continues in Vienna. In its second iteration, the exhibition will be newly curated by Otberg and include additional works.

"The idea of Mountains represents a paradox for humans and is deeply loaded with symbolic meaning. Mountains represent a seeming permanence, as if they have always been there. But, geology tells us that mountains are actually distortions in the fabric of the land, formed at the intersection of tectonic plates. As such rather than being permanent, they are actually geological relics of change".
