Hans Ulrich Obrist and the ICI traveling exhibition do it are profiled extensively in the current issue of The New Yorker magazine. The article, written by D. T. Max, focuses on the prolific curator, delving into his early years, the development of his intimate relationships with artists, and his dedication to unique ways of exhibiting works of art.
About Obrist, Max says:
“Obrist, for his part, notes that his exhibits often demonstrate what he has called a “quality of unfinishedness and incompleteness.” He doesn’t like art to have temporal, spatial, or intellectual limits. The white cube of the gallery irks him; closing dates bother him. He prefers to think of exhibitions as seeds that can grow.”
The article goes on to talk about the first exhibition of do it in Klagenfurt, Austria, and the project’s evolution over the last twenty years, calling it “one of the most widely produced art shows in the world.”
