In 2009 the Métamatic Research Initiative set out to investigate Jean Tinguely’s exploration of the relationship between the artist, the art work and the viewer as expressed in his Métamatic sculptures. Last winter eight artists have been commissioned to undertake artistic research. The artists are now halfway through their projects and will speak in Amsterdam about their art and their commission during the autumn of 2011 and the spring of 2012.
