Situation November 18 22 at Princeton University The piece is free and open to the public details here and below This situation Tino Sehgal This situation is a constructed situation akin to a contemporary salon in which live interpreters drawing on quotations selected from 500 years of thought discuss among themselves and with visitors such issues as the aesthetics of existence and the implications of moving from a society of lack to a society of abundance This situation has been shown in galleries and museums around the world including once previously in the U S at Marian Goodman Gallery in New York in 2007 The work is held in the permanent collection of the Centre Pompidou Paris The presentation at Princeton will be the first time that it has been staged in an academic

Asad Raza Yasmil Raymond DIA Irene Small Princeton Justin Smith Paris VII and several of the work s interpreters will take up the alternative pedagogy of the piece in an academic context Tino Sehgal who was born in Britain in 1976 and lives in Berlin creates what he calls constructed situations choreographed gestures and spoken instructions that are acted out by players and interpreters in museum and gallery contexts Explicitly not performances they are ordinarily on view continuously during a museum s opening hours over a period of at least six weeks The conceptual nature of his practice grows out of an investigation into what constitutes a work of art and a crystallization of the art experience which for Sehgal entails a direct engagement in the here and now between visitors and players in carefully choreographed situations The visitor is conceived as a fundamental part of the work and may if he she chooses to participate dramatically alter its unfolding Tino Sehgal s most recent pieces are This variation which was presented at Documenta 13 in Kassel Germany this past summer and These associations in which seventy players filled the immense Turbine Hall of Tate Modern in London He has had major solo exhibitions at the Guggenheim Museum in New York ICA in London and Walker Art Center in Minneapolis and represented Germany at the 2005 Venice Biennale at the 2013

Institute for Creative Destruction here and here August 30 2013 Sean Kelly announces Pataphysics A Theoretical Exhibition a group exhibition focusing on pataphysical sensibilities in contemporary art exploring the impact of this quirky and deeply influential philosophy originated at the end of the 19th century by the French poet and playwright Alfred Jarry Though the definition of Pataphysics a school of thought that playfully rejects the objective truths of empiricism is intentionally vague its implications run deep through many of the important philosophical movements of the 20th century While existing quietly in the background for decades recent contemporary art has found alignments with its absurdist principles Including works from both contemporary artists and their pataphysical forebearers the exhibition will examine Pataphysics and its legacy in contemporary art First run editions of some of Jarry s books such as his seminal Ubu Roi ou Les Polonais form the cornerstone of the exhibition Marcel Duchamp one of the earliest members of the College de Pataphysiques is represented in the exhibition with several works among them the artist s iconic Rotoreliefs a set of six double sided two dimensional discs that spin to create an illusion of depth More recent explorations of the absurdist nature of the movement are found in Kate Glimore s video Sudden as a Massacre in which a group of women dressed in heels and floral print dresses strenuously pull apart a large block of wet clay hurling handfuls of it at the surrounding environment and in Iran do Espírito Santo s Street Pole a life size recreation of a common street lamp made of solid granite rendering it useless for its original purpose Kris Martin s Apocalypse an antique typewriter with an etching in its carriage embodies the pataphysical conflation of visual and verbal puns Humor is evident in many of the works in Pataphysics A Theoretical Exhibition Slavs and Tatars oversized balloon A Monobrow Manifesto Hot Not uses perceptions of this facial feature as hot or not to demystify the conflict between East and West while Hennessy Youngman the alter ego of artist Jayson Musson created Art Thoughtz a series of YouTube videos in which Youngman directly addresses the audience insightfully critiquing various aspects of the elite art world as a faux outsider Matthew Ritchie s contribution to the show oil on linen paintings with mylar decal extensions addresses another aspect of the pataphysical particularly Jarry s interest in games of chance and knowledge systems that lie beyond metaphysics The artists included in the exhibition engage the core sensibilities of Pataphysics evoking its irreverent and often light hearted exploration of the world Works that establish novel systems of representation are juxtaposed with works that through absurdist actions and objects manifest pataphysical conceptions of reality Ai Weiwei Darren Bader Joseph Beuys Olaf Breuning Los

on April 18 I ll be in front of a classic 3 paneled presentation board showing some aspects of a long running research project on the topic of attention Artistic Research Science Fair at MoMA D Graham Burnett Sal Randolph Steve Rowell Brooke Singer and Alexandra P Spaudling Thursday April 18 2013 12 30 2 00 p m Education Classroom B mezzanine The Lewis B and Dorothy Cullman Education and Research Building Art in the Long View at Lunchtime In conversation with artists and MoMA Lecturers explore long term process based art and its impact on the experience of art While many artists establish concrete goals the processes we are interested in examining may span the lifetime of the artist require ongoing participation or discussion and be linked more to research and exploration than to a pre established plan Bring your lunch and discover how these challenges to the constraints of time and the expectations of final product and finality force viewers and participants to reconsider the role of art in society This series serves as an incubator of ideas in advance of our upcoming Contemporary Art Forum on May 2 and 3 Join us for an interactive lunchtime session featuring artists who explore the creative possibilities of sustained investigation Following the model of a science fair research artists Sal Randolph Steve Rowell Brooke Singer and Alexandra P Spaudling will set up individual stations and offer reports on their results to date Prepare for presentation boards poster talks and engaged conversation The included projects are long term multifaceted endeavors that are rarely represented in traditional venues such as museums or galleries making this session a unique opportunity to learn about them through a direct dialogue with their creators The program concludes with a round table conversation among the artists moderated by D Graham Burnett focusing on such questions as Can science and scholarship be the medium of the artist What can be learned from the contrast between the creatively driven approach of artistic research and the focused methodology of empirically oriented investigative practices What happens at the intersection of precise knowledge and infinite possibility D Graham Burnett is an editor at Cabinet magazine and teaches at Princeton University He is the author of five books most recently The Sounding of the Whale Chicago 2012 He and W J Walter are the creators of Novelchess a system for translating literature into chess matches Tickets are free but required and can be acquired on a first come first served basis online or at

  • Sal Randolph: On Statement Objects
    you the piece I m fascinated by this whole class of works of art I call statement objects works where a short text sometimes even a title acts as an instruction from which the piece can be made In a way it s a kind of narrative impulse the story of the work rather than the work itself is the work a paradox a bit of recursive code Or that moment when the story and the work actually collapse into each other an artistic singularity It s a point where the work and knowledge about the work almost become one thing Such work can be copyrighted but never precisely owned One of the genesis points for this kind of work was John Cage s famous experimental composition class at the New School from 1957 to 1959 which included as students George Brecht Alan Kaprow Al Hansen Dick Higgins Jackson Mac Low and La Monte Young This class influenced a blooming of event scores and performance instructions among the loose conglomerate of artists connected to Fluxus George Brecht s Water Yam was a box of cards with 70 100 of his scores depending on the edition One laconic example from Water Yam Word Event Exit 1961 Alison Knowles event scores included 2 Proposition 1962 Make a salad which she is still performing And of course there s Yoko Ono Wind Piece Make a way for the wind In her book Grapefruit there is a version of the text which goes on This was first performed in 1962 Sogetsu Art Center Tokyo with a huge electric fan on the stage In 1966 Wesleyan University Conn audience was asked to move their chairs a little and make a narrow aisle for the wind to pass through No wind was created with special means
