Acne Stefan Brüggeman White Art / T-shirt Project
The first artist in the series is Stefan Brüggeman who lives and works between London and Mexico City. His work combines a conceptual practice with a rough and critical attitude that questions its inner activity at the same time as it reflects on our sociological context. Though the artist mainly works with text, using vinyl and neon as its supports, he explores a wide range of media, creating large-scale installation pieces, videos, paintings and drawings. The artist has had recent solo exhibitions at Kunsthalle Bern, Switzerland; FRAC Bougogne, Dijon; and Kunsthalle Lissabon, Portugal. Stefan has also participated in prominent group shows at the MCA Chicago; Schirn Kunsthalle, Frankfurt; Centre D'Art Contemporian, Geneve; and Lismore Castle Arts, Ireland. He is currently preparing for a solo exhibition at Galician Contemporary Art Centre [CGAC], Santiago de Compostela, Spain and a group show at the Museu Serralves, Porto, Portugal.
