VernissageTV Classics (r3): Keith Tyson: Large Field Array / Pace Wildenstein, New York (2007)

For the 10th segment in our r3 series, we look back at Keith Tyson’s 2007 exhibition Large Field Array at Pace Wildenstein in New York. Keith Tyson arranged over 220 separate sculptural forms in a grid-like array (see the original post for more information.)

Keith Tyson was born in 1969 in Ulverston, Lancashire (England). He studied at the Faculty of Arts and Architecture, University of Brighton. In 2002, he won the Turner Prize.

Keith Tyson’s “Large Field Array” is named after the Very Large Array (VLA), a field of Radio Telescopes in New Mexico. The elements of the work are arranged in a grid and suspended on the walls. Art critic Walter Robinson described the work as “nothing less than a complete Pop cosmology“. Among the individual sculptures are a house of cards, a chair made of skeletons, a mini-tornado of water mist in a box, a roulette table, and a box with bubbling mud.

The 2007 exhibition “Jasper Johns: An Allegory of Painting, 1955 – 1965″ at Kunstmuseum Basel presented the groundbreaking early work of Jasper Johns, beginning in the mid-1950s with such famous works as “Target with Four Faces”. The show brought together around seventy key works on loan from museums and private collections in the US and Europe.

The Polish artist Robert Kusmirowski is known for his elaborate installations and performances. For the Barbican Center in London he created a replica of a World War Two-era bunker (Bunker, 2010).

VernissageTV Classics (r3): Robert Rauschenberg and Darryl Pottorf at Jamileh Weber (2006)

On July 15, 2006 Galerie Jamileh Weber in Zurich opened an exhibition with a selection of works by Robert Rauschenberg and new works by Robert Rauschenberg’s former assistant Darryl Pottorf. The exhibition was quite unique in that the selection of works by Rauschenberg presented in this show are all works that the artist kept for his own collection. In this video, we attend the opening reception of the exhibition.

Robert Rauschenberg (1925-2008) came to prominence in the 1950s transition from Abstract Expressionism to Pop Art. Robert Rauschenberg was both a painter and a sculptor. He is well-known for his “Combines” that are a combination of both. He also worked with photography, printmaking, papermaking, and performance. In 1993 he was awarded the National Medal of Arts. Robert Rauschenberg lived and worked in New York City as well as on Captiva Island, Florida until his death on May 12, 2008.

VernissageTV Classics (r3): Christoph Büchel: Hole at Kunsthalle Basel

In 2005, Swiss artist Christoph Büchel converted the Kunsthalle Basel into a labyrinth that led to a hall with the remnants of an exploded excursion bus. The exhibition walkthrough we filmed was one of the first videos we published – the second episode, in fact. After this initial encounter with Büchel’s work, VernissageTV filmed several of his other works and installations, such as the gigantic “Simply Botiful” at Hauser & Wirth in London. We thought it’s time to revisit this show, because it was one of the reasons to start VernissageTV.

This is the third episode in our new series r3 that highlights the treasures of VernissageTV’s huge archive. R3 is a series of VernissageTV classics, now re-mastered, re-edited and reissued in High Standard Definition (well, we didn’t have an HD cam yet).
