Anti and art. Part 1: MFA

January 23, 2011

Thinking about my beloved baby, my thesis, I am ever more confident that I am correct (most cutting-edge art/design requires an “anti” sensibility. I.e Saying “this is what has been done before. Here I will go against it in this way….” ). A big trouble nowadays is that I feel like it’s almost TOO broad. Everything seems to fit in!

Here are some great visual examples I finally am getting around to posting:

Went to the new wing of the MFA with my mom. Was totally packed and we could discuss some other issues with it, but overall I liked it. Especially how some things were displayed:

backward chairs mfa  betsy medvedovsky design

two frames mfa  betsy medvedovsky design

I actually love the frames: that kills me. Just having a frame within another one — isn’t that so exciting! And the backwards chairs. The easiest things in the world — but so fun to see in a museum.

Part of ANTI is a serious economy of means which I think these examples show.
