I visited New Museum located @ 235 Bowery in NYC for an exhibit called “Unmonumental” – on Thursday nights you can avoid the $12 admission fee (free Thursdays!). There were a few interesting exhibits made from mostly “found” and urban objects, I liked the lock picks, button mattress, free speech zone fencing and the burning candle sculpture. “Unmonumental” will be there until March 30, 2008.
“Unmonumental: The Object in the 21st Century” is the first exhibition in the “Unmonumental” cycle, and explores the reinvention of sculptural assemblage. Using found, fragmented, and discarded materials, the works of the artists on view make a case for modesty, informality, and improvisation.
