Palais des Beaux Arts Wien: palaisdesbeauxarts.at

The name Palais des Beaux Arts is a multiple. Popularized in the 19th century as an architectural container for primarily Western European aristocratic wealth and its colonial exploits, this dangling signifier continues to be emptied and filled with varying degrees of intensity across the globe – Madrid, Belgium, Mexico City, Rio de Janeiro, Lille, Vienna, and now St. Louis.

For their work in the Hunt Gallery, Palais des Beaux Arts Wien has scaled their website to the limits of the gallery’s walls, treating the light from the browser as a sculptural material. Conceived of as an automated score, the sculpture cycles through a selection of newly commissioned artworks from the collection, lifestyle fragments, archival materials surrounding the family which founded the Palais des Beaux Arts Wien, as well as some of the administrative cul-de-sacs that the institution underwent while occupied by the Nazis.
