Today Daniel McGrath and I installed Michael Heizer's - Compression Line, 68'. It's the nature of museum work that it remains invisible to the majority of people who go to art openings. There is sometimes ridiculous events that unfold as museum monkeys scramble to make do with tools not meant for the situation. This is an elegant shot of an interesting day.
Michael Heizer would be proud.
Daniel is pictured in the photo. He teaches art history at Webster and is an artist himself. We talked about Robert Graves, down tempo metal, Fi Jae Lee and Allan McCollum and the systems employed when artists create cosmologies.
Fi Jae Lee is showing at the Cecille R. Hunt Gallery at Webster University, Friday, Feb . 20, 6 - 8pm. Click here for details.
