The Bruce High Quality Foundation: Ode to Joy\, 2001–201 3 is a retrospective of over fifty works by The Bruce High Quality Fou ndation\, a Brooklyn-based art collective whose production includes subvers ive and often humorous installation art\, live performance\, film\, and soc ial sculpture. Taking its name from the fictional artist Bruce High Quality \, who supposedly perished on September 11\, 2001\, the Foundation views 9/ 11 as a seminal moment in contemporary history\; the ensuing wars and econo mic and cultural shifts are recurring concerns. Through its writings\, orig inal works of art\, and free\, unaccredited art school (The Bruce High Qual ity Foundation University)\, it attempts to democratize relationships betwe en artist and public. The Foundation's work often combines past\, present\, and future\, blending fact and fiction in an attempt to encourage and refr ame cultural discourse and\, in its own words\, to "invest the experience o f public space with wonder\, to resurrect art history from the bowels of de spair\, and to impregnate the institutions of art with the joy of man’s des iring."
