Walid Raad - Let's Be Honest, The Weather Helped
Based in New York, the Lebanese-born artist Walid Raad (1967) often deals with the significance of locale in his work, and particularly with how different forms of violence or disruptive events can affect the lives of objects, ideas, or artworks. The artist’s appearances during and literally in the midst of his exhibitions are also an integral part of his practice. This extensive catalogue is published on the occasion of ‘Let’s be honest, the weather helped’, shown at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam and the Moderna Museet, Stockholm, and offers a comprehensive overview of three long-term projects by Raad, along with a live performance piece entitled ‘Kicking the Dead and/or Les Louvres’.
