Installation View

Sept. 22, 2011 - Jan. 21, 2012

601 Artspace, New York, NY

For Installation View, the McCoys bend their artistic practice of revealing how meaning is made, to focus on how meaning is displayed. Their curatorial effort here aims to discover the private lives of art works. As an intervention into 601’s affiliated collection, they have created a site-specific exhibition out of non-site-specific art. Whether situated outdoors, in a guesthouse, or in an artist’s studio, Installation View shows artworks the way they more frequently exist, instead of in a state of exhibition. Playing off of Louise Lawler’s ongoing practice of capturing art behind the scenes, the McCoys will project images from a network of live feed cameras in order to better observe the natural habitats of art. Exhibition includes works by: WILLIAM EGGLESTON FISCHLI & WEISS SUSAN HAMBURGER LOUISE LAWLER ABELARDO MORELL GABRIEL OROZCO RICHARD SERRA STEPHEN SHORE THOMAS STRUTH HIROSHI SUGIMOTO JEFF WALL
