Tino Sehgal: Getting conceptual at the Guggenheim.

In early January WNYC put out a call to listeners to have someone join me at the press preview for the Tino Sehgal exhibit at the Guggenheim. The London-born Sehgal doesn’t show objects of any sort (he doesn’t even allow for the production of wall text, catalogues or certificates documenting his work). So, the idea was to have someone share in the experience and discuss what it was like on-air. More than 100 folks submitted comments (wow!). And super-smart Brooklyn-based painter Susanna Heller was chosen for the task. She was a willing and able partner-in-mischief. We had a total blast together. You can get the lowdown on our experience of Sehgal’s totally kooky ‘situation’ right here.

Thanks to everyone who submitted comments. The response was fantastic. And if you happen to live in New York – even if you give a rat’s ass about art: do not miss an opportunity to see the Guggenheim totally nekkid.

[P.S. Special thanks to the Gugg for somehow letting me get away with this.]
