…like if you’re Britney Spears at the MTV awards and you f— up your dance routine and that’s it.

When I first had the idea for this experiment, I got to thinking about Tino Seghal.  I’m thinking about him again today thanks to a link from @mcachicago to a very good article about him in W’s Art Issue. Reading about his work and his perspective on the art world always sortof simultaneously makes me swoon and shake my head with disbelief (which for the record, I love.)  The Guggenheim website has this to say of his upcoming solo how opening a the end of January:

Organized as part of the Guggenheim’s 50th-anniversary celebrations, Sehgal’s exhibition comprises a mise-en-scène that will occupy the entire Frank Lloyd Wright–designed rotunda. One facet of the artist’s practice, quasi-sculptural choreographed movement, will transform the ground floor of the rotunda into an arena for spectatorship. On the spiraling ramp, another aspect—direct verbal interaction between museum visitors and trained participants—will predominate. Sehgal’s works expand the concept of what constitutes a contemporary art object, offering the viewer an immediate engagement with the realization of the work presented.

If you’re in NY, I hope you’ll go see it and then tell me about it….although really, that’s not the point at all.  *sigh*
