Hey amigos, do you want a limited edition Tony Smith t-shirt (cute boy not included)? Read the article I just posted on Art21 about it. Let me know if you have any questions.
Please help share this project … I’d really like to have all of Tony Smith’s artworks documented by the end of 2013!
Sure, people have found all sorts of rare things in Google Maps, but I think I have found the first example of a conservation treatment of an artwork in progress. The image above is of a conservation crew working on the Tony Smith sculpture, The Elevens Are Up from 1963 — this version being the first in an edition of three and owned by the Menil Collection. It looks like the conservators just took a break for lunch and left their stuff hanging on the scaffold.
Pretty nerdy, I know, but still cool.
Above is a version of the sculpture (either number two or three) when it was on view at Matthew Marks Gallery
The International Network for the Conservation of Contemporary Art – North America has launched a project this summer to document all of the Tony Smith outdoor artworks around the world using Wikipedia and Flickr, two free web-based resources. This is part of INCCA-NA’s “Artist Research Project” for which Smith was chosen as the inaugural artist in part with recognition of his 100th birthday this September.
No doubt, many of you visit or even work for institutions that have Tony Smith sculptures on view, and you could help create up-to-date documentation of all of the sculptures in the world. Here’s a link to the list of his sculptures so you can find one near you, and here’s a link to a page in Wikipedia that provides good instructions on how to write a Wikipedia article about a Tony Smith outdoor sculpture.
Please get involved and help us document all of his outdoor artworks in recognition of one of US’ most-renowned artists!
