Fischli & Weiss Popular Tableaus

without comments

Peter Fischli and David Weiss unfired clay tableaus are whimsical and striking. Here are just a few that I really enjoyed from the Guggenheim exhibition How To Work Better.

Fischli & Weiss Drawings

without comments

Yesterday, I made it to the Peter Fischli and David Weiss exhibition How To Work Better at the Guggenheim Museum. A big fan of their work for a very long time, I’d been looking forward to seeing this show and it is great. Below are a few of the drawings that I enjoy and separately I’m posting a selection of the ceramic pieces from the “Popular Opposites” series.

Latino Artists at the Guggenheim

without comments

The Guggenheim presents a strong selection of Latino artists (as problematic as the label is), however, the work that is featured is not amongst the strongest by these individuals. Three works that stood out are Carlos Amorales’s Calder-inspired cymbal mobile that visitors may play, Jonathas de Andrade’s “Posters for the Museum of the Northeast Man. 2013”, and Juan Downey’s Amazonian film installation. Many of the works are presented out of context as many were performative and/or protests, works in which the power lies in the environment and moment when they were executed. Presented within the context of the museum robs the cultural significance of many of these pieces.
