Hubbard/Birchler - Public Lecture
Halifax Central Library
Public Lecture Series

Teresa Hubbard and Alexander Bircher have been working collaboratively in film, photography and sculpture since 1990. They live and work in Austin, USA and Berlin, Germany. In 2017 they received honorary degrees from NSCAD University and are representing Switzerland in the Swiss Pavilion at the 57th Venice Biennial in the exhibition curated by Philipp Kaiser, "Women of Venice." Their work invites suggestive, open-ended reflections on place and cinema and is "propelled by the artists' fascination with the open circuits of social life, memory, and history that sit just outside the frame of moving images." Interweaving hybrid forms of storytelling, their work explores "the ways film's past-tense fictions permeate real geographies in the present." 

Hubbard / Birchler's work is held in numerous public collections including the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden at the Smithsonian, Washington D. C.; Kunsthaus Zurich; Kunstmuseum Basel; Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth; Museum of Fine Arts Houston; Yokohama Museum of Art and the Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich.
