This video documents the installation of Richard Artschwager’s Blps on the High Line at Avenues and around the High Line, as well as the curator’s info-session with the students. Artschwager passed away this weekend at the age of 89 – only days after his retrospective at the Whitney Museum came to a close. For decades, Artschwager’s work has continued to influence people to see the world, think, and create art differently and this video serves to honour his legacy.
As part of his retrospective with the Whitney Museum this past Autumn, Artschwager placed his signature blps around the High Line in Chelsea – including two on the building of Avenues: The World School.
Please see our December/January issue of Aesthetica to see Richard Artschwager’s installation featured in the 10 to See.
