A Moment in Time, Review of Erwin Wurm's New One Minute Sculptures  
Erwin Wurm at Lehmann Maupin - West 22nd Street March 30th, 2017 - May 26th, 2017
Posted 4/29/17
The Austrian artist Erwin Wurm rose to fame with his One Minute Sculptures, an ongoing project that he started in the late 1980s. In these, the artist gives instructions to the models and himself to pose for unexpected interactions with objects that we found in our everyday life.

In the Internet age we’ve all heard it said that content is king. Although now part of popular nomenclature, this idea is not novel. Susan Sontag asserts in her seminal 1966 essay, “Against Interpretation,” that “whatever it may have been in the past, the idea of content is today mainly a hindrance, a nuisance, a subtle or not so subtle philistinism.” It is not difficult imagining that the curators at the Boghosian Foundation’s Villa Empain had both this concept and the consequence in mind...

It was afternoon. In Copenhagen. A charming, too-handsome-for-words mutual acquaintance relayed the news that Denmark had been crowned the richest country in the EU. I couldn’t vouch for this, but its capital appeared to be the most sustainable of all the conscientiously green cities I’d visited in northern Europe. Of course I wasn’t travelling all the way from America to Scandinavia for wind farms, organic elderberry juice, or even the first-time thrill of ordering drinks at an honest-to-God... [more]

The Austrian sculptor Erwin Wurm has brought his surreal sense of humor to the Bass Museum of Art, filling up gallery spaces and walls with a playful exhibition that explores the relationships between the human body and the clothing and architecture that surround it.The exhibition takes its title from a comic book that the artist used to read as a child. He would hide this comic book in different spots within his bedroom so that his parents wouldn't find it. That childhood relationship to... [more]

        I could take my mom to “Human Rites”, the current show at the Bass Museum.  My mom, not having much of a background or knowledge of contemporary art, still appreciates art and appreciates history.  At "Human Rites", one can look at works from times past, side by side to their newer counterparts, initiating a launching point for discussion about art. “Human Rites” at the Bass Museum is co-curated by Executive Director and Chief Curator, Silvia Karman Cubiñá and Adjunct Curator...
