Why should people over in Chelsea care about this?
“Everyone should be concerned with what is happening in the world. If you are not interested, I can’t help you – you deserve the world you live in. But at the end of the day, I find that most people interested in art stuff tend to be interested in other interesting things. I feel very excited because I think this show poses more questions than anything I have ever worked on before. You really have to embrace the ambiguity in it, and I am hoping that people come to see the work and really test their thinking powers about how this all fits together.” -Nato Thompson
I am not there, and if you’re like me and wish you were, I strongly recommend this Artnet interview with Creative Time NYC’s Chief Curator. Here you can watch some key thinkers, including Nato Thompson, deliver their talks.
