Richard Artschwager, Exclamation Point (Chartreuse)

For more than 40 years, Richard Artschwager has been creating a brilliantly eccentric mélange of Pop Art, Minimalism and Conceptual Art, moving among mediums such as sculpture, installation and drawing while walking his own peculiar tightrope between high and low culture. His subjects have been the commonest of common items—furniture, fried eggs, building facades, exclamation points—rendered with or on such off-the-shelf materials as Formica and Celotex panels, the stuff that goes into modular ceilings. The result might be called suburban surreal or maybe folk art on postindustrial steroids. This full-scale career retrospective of 150 works should be a highlight of the fall.
