This exhibition is a sequel to, and a reevaluation of, the legendary 1969 exhibition When Attitudes Become Form, which was curated by Harald Szeemann at Kunsthalle Bern in Switzerland. It brings together 82 international contemporary artists who follow, in various ways, the legacy of Szeemann’s iconic exhibition.

When Attitudes Become Form has been discussed, researched, and examined in a wide range of essays, books, and conferences; When Attitudes Became Form Become Attitudes is the first major exhibition it has inspired. The new show will present existing pieces by artists working in relation to the history of Conceptual art as well as newly commissioned works by artists such as Zarouhie Abdalian, James Beckett, Abraham Cruzvillegas, Annika Eriksson, Simon Fujiwara, Jeppe Hein, Jonathan Monk, Nicolás Paris, and Hank Willis Thomas, who will respond directly to the history of the 1969 show and to the site of the new show. With the contemporary artworks installed alongside archival materials, floor plans, and installation images from the 1969 show, this new exhibition does not make a distinction between what is past and what is present, but rather considers When Attitudes Become Form as a living past.
