Olivier Mosset

For four decades Swiss visual artist Olivier Mosset has participated in the discussion of how an artwork should function historically, socially, and aesthetically. In the 1960s he became a member of the B.M.P.T, a group of conceptually driven artists that included Daniel Buren, Michael Parmentier, and Niele Toroni, who questioned modernist ideas of authorship and originality in art, insisting that the object take precedence over authorship.

Mosset's later paintings, made in 1970s New York, focused on the monochrome and then on abstraction and materials that explored means of production and the role of the artist. Since BMPT he has collaborated with many artists, including Marcia Hafif and Joseph Marioni, Andy Warhol, Stephen Parrino, Cady Noland, John Armleder, and "Indian Larry" Desmedt. He has participated in numerous exhibitions, including the Swiss Pavilion at the 1990 Venice Biennale and the 2008 Whitney Biennial.
