Sun K. Kwak: Enfolding 280 Hours

March 13th, 2009 by Jeff | 0

A very cool-looking piece called Enfolding 280 Hours by Korean-born, New York City–based artist Sun K. Kwak will open later this month at the Brooklyn Museum. It’s an enormous mural created by using about 3 miles of black masking tape. The title refers to the number of hours the artist estimated that it would take her and her assistants to install the piece. Checkout photos of the taping process. The piece will be up from March 27 to July 5.

A major exhibition of the artist Jenny Holzer opens today at the Whitney Museum of American Art. This is the largest exhibition in the U.S. of Holzer’s work in more than 15 years. Organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, the show centers on Holzer’s work since the 1990s and includes her LED sculptures, paintings and some Projections. See images and video from the exhibit. The show closes May 31st….[edit] And also…There’s a nice review by Roberta Smith in the New York Times, where she singled out Holzer’s piece “Red Yellow Looming,” as what may be the most beautiful yet most sinister piece Ms. Holzer has made. See more photos of the Holzer show.

Street With a View

January 25th, 2009 by Jeff | 0

Pittsburgh artists Benjamin Kinsley and Robin Hewlet and the Mattress Factory museum teamed up with Google to create an interactive art piece using Google Streetview. They created scenes along Sampsonia Way in Pittsburg that could have taken place, but probably could never have all happened at the same time. A ten-foot plucked chicken sits behind a chainlink fence, two men have a medieval sword fight, a faux marathon runs by, firefighters save a cat in a tree, a garage band plays in a garage, and a high school marching band parades by in just a few blocks of Sampsonia Way at the same time. Read more or watch video of how they pulled it off.
