The Museum der Moderne Salzburg mounts the Swiss artist Not Vital’s (Sent, CH, 1948) first solo exhibition at a museum in Austria. The sprawling presentation features twenty-one sculptures, three expansive installations that take up entire rooms and walls, and one hundred forty drawings.

Not Vital has built a reputation as an artist-nomad driven by a passion for exploring far-flung places and setting up new homes and sites of production. This obsessive urge to, as it were, situate his art in a global framework and his fascination with other cultures and ways of life have guided him on a five-decade-long peripatetic quest around the world.

The exhibition at the Museum der Moderne Salzburg was designed in close collaboration with the artist and focuses on the aspects of nomadism and the surreal in his oeuvre. It is accompanied by a richly illustrated publication with scholarly essays in German and English.
