A very happy 244th birthday to Ludwig van Beethoven!
Wexner Center: Six Solos
Watch Ashley Brook, assistant producer of ArtZine, and Christopher Bedford, chief curator of exhibitions at the Wexner Center for the Arts, discuss and interact withÂ Six Solos, a set of six independent exhibitions on display inside and outside the Wexner Center for the Arts, November 2010 through February 2011.
The exhibit,Â whichÂ opens in conjunction with the center’s 21st anniversary celebrations,Â featuresÂ some very playful and interactive works.
“It’s probably a symptom of this moment, in part, that artists areÂ interestedÂ in inviting interactivity and engaging viewers in a way that, perhaps, art hasn’t in the past. It’s not supposed to be withheld. It’s not supposed to exist at a distance. It’s supposed to interact with people,” saidÂ Bedford.
One example of this type of playful work isÂ Joel Morrison’s huge sculpture of a latexÂ glove, which Bedford said, is meant to inspire you to “think more about the narrativeÂ conceitsÂ of the object.”
A highly interactive sculpture by Gustavo Godoy, requires a waver to climb and wasÂ designed toÂ play on and interact with the Wexner Centerâ€™s architecture.
Watch Brook and Bedford interact with more art featured in this playful exhibit.
