Michael Asher: MoCA Chicago 1979


For this installation, Asher proposed that the two horizontal rows of aluminum panels on either side of and on the same level as the Bergman Gallery windows should be removed from the facade and placed on an interior wall of the gallery for the duration of the exhibition.


Arguing that this project “points to the conditions in which architecture and art, as practices, have become irreconcilable,” Asher believes that the only similarity between these two practices is ultimately stylistic.
