Don Celender: Surveyed

Surveyed is the first European solo exhibition of the American conceptual artist Don Celender.

Celender was a master of asking questions, his work takes the form of mass mailed out surveys to specific groups of people or professions (chefs, prison guards, art critics or dentists, for example) asking them what they think about life, their jobs, art and often, ultimately, death.

Without an immediate purpose, the questionnaires are interested in a conceptual collection of data and systems of order, but at the same time subvert these systems through radical openness and the artists’ participatory and playful methodology.

Besides 15 published bookworks, Celender realized 35 unpublished survey projects. Surveyed is a rare opportunity to see a selection of these unpublished survey projects. The exhibition will present amongst others the Censorship Survey, Ignored or Neglected Artists Survey, Famous Chefs Art Preference Survey, Military Officers Art Preference Survey, Last Words Survey, and What the Critics said, Art Dealers Selection of Artists Survey.
