Some nice photos by triciagilson from the Tinguely opening, including one of the girl who turned it on, and one of my wife & Oley.
Jean Tinguely’s Chaos I in Columbus, Indiana was brought back to life this past Saturday (4 June 2011). It had been inactive for over three years while the original building it was in was taken down & a new building built around it.
Chaos I is an extraordinary work of art, and without question it is the most significant work by Tinguely in the United States. Check out Richard McCoy’s art21 blog about the sculpture.
Today at 1pm Jean Tinguely’s monumental sculpture will come back to life in the new Commons building. It will spin, twist, clank, and surprise; check out out my column on Art21’s Blog for more information and come on out to the celebration today.
