Playing Homage was an international group exhibition in which the artist was the subject matter. Central to all of the works in the show was a focus on the figure of the artist, used by each artist as a reference point to address their own subjectivities as makers, as institutional critique, and in sincere homage to an historical cast of artists and to the cult of the artist persona.

Several of the artists in Playing Homage directly took on the specific identity of another artist, while others play a more generalized character. Some of the works were remakes or restagings of earlier works in which the artists became, quite literally, actors playing a role, while others dictated what it meant to be an artist.  The exhibition brought together new and older works, including My Late Early Styles (Part I, The Middle Period) (2007 – 09) by Rodney Graham, an image first conceived for the pages of Artforum (2007), but never previously realized as a large format photograph, and General Idea’s little known video, Press Conference, which was taped at the Western Front, Vancouver in 1977.  Also included was Mark Leckey’s Made in ‘Eaven (2004), shown as part of his winning exhibition for the 2008 Turner Prize, and Andrea Fraser’s sharp re-articulation of a Martin Kippenberger speech in Kunst Muss Hängen (2001).  Martha Wilson’s premiere video from 1972, a selection of posters by Kippenberger, and new work by Kerstin Cmelka, Christos Dikeakos, Evan Lee and Ming Wong were also included.
