DESCRIPTION
A group project based on the Brancusi sculpture, Endless Column.  The artists have re-invented the sculpture and pushed it beyond it's original boundaries.  The inspiration for the show comes from a common interest in the  2001 cult movie, Donnie Darko and a book in the film called The Philosophy of Time Travel.  That title prompted the artists to  examine how history bends back on itself.  The results were to re-imagine this classic sculpture in a new era and under new circumstances, tilting the work to shatter the floor and ceiling of the museum. A DVD and full-color catalogue with approximately 112 pages and three scholarly essays by Lowery Stokes Sims, Hilton Als and Christine Y. Kim will be available in the Museum Store.
