The Schindler House presents Austrian artist Erwin Wurm’s One Minute Sculptures from Jan. 27-March 27 with an open reception on Jan. 27 from 7-9 p.m.
Wurm’s sculptures have never been shown at a major institution in Los Angeles. For his exhibition at the Schindler House, Wurm will source props ranging from the ordinary to blatantly comedic. He includes a set of instructions so visitors can interact with the various sculptures for 60 seconds at a time, including balancing acts, mild contortions and altered uses of everyday physical objects.
By inviting visitors to complete the artworks themselves, Wurm invites them to ask questions about the differences between “artwork” and “art work,” the activity of art alongside the display object.
Wurm’s practice has been celebrated and exhibited internationally. His work has most recently been shown in solo shows at the Indianapolis Museum of Art; Städel Museum, Frankfurt, Germany; and the Lehmann Maupin Gallery, New York. His work also appears in permanent collections around the world.
One Minute Sculptures is supported by the Pasadena Art Alliance and in part by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors through the Los Angeles County Arts Commission.
The Schindler House is located at 835 N. Kings Rd. For information, visit makcenter.org/sites/schindler-house.
