I spend a fair amount of time torturing myself with watching over exhibitions in places where I am not, like this one by ROBERT GROSVENOR (1937).
27 years after its initial realization, The Renaissance Society in Chicago is presenting Untitled (1989-90), a monumental sculpture by ROBERT GROSVENOR. The work is made of materials he collected such as for this specific piece, concrete blocks, steel, plexiglass, and paint.
More generally his works and his exhibitions don’t resolve into one view at all, nor they are coated with informations. His objects instead are keeping the visitor moving around them in order to unfold patiently in real space and in time. This piece is no exception.
Untitled (1989-90) is on view at The Renaissance Society in Chicago until April 9, 2017.
