This event has ended.

Swiss Institute presents the first institutional solo exhibition in the United States of Zurich-based artist Mathis Altmann. For Foul Matters, Altmann has created a new body of sculptures, continuing his ongoing material excavation into the infrastructural ‘guts’ of urban spaces.

Mathis Altmann: Foul Matters is the eighth exhibition in the ONE FOR ALL series at SI. Building on Swiss Institute’s long history of providing a platform for emerging artists, each show is the artist’s first institutional solo exhibition in the United States, with a newly commissioned body of work specifically created for the exhibition space.
