    Olafur Eliasson on How to Do Good Art

    tmagazine.blogs.nytimes.com 27 Dec '14, 1am

    If there isn’t much irony at Studio Olafur Eliasson, I came to feel, it’s not because irony is proscribed. Irony doesn’t offend anyone and it doesn’t go over anyone’s head. Irony is simply not required, because the things you can achieve with crusading sincerity are self-evidently so ...

  • Olafur Eliasson on How to Do Good Art

    tmagazine.blogs.nytimes.com 13 Nov '14, 4pm

    If Eliasson had his way, the same “everyone’s invited!” quality that makes his work so appealing to institutions might sometimes be pushed to extremes that would leave even those institutions flustered. Before I left the studio, I related to Eliasson something that happened to me in J...

    tmagazine.blogs.nytimes.com 13 Nov '14, 3pm

    A lot of Eliasson’s works are like this: irruptions of the elemental into a museum setting, as if the building had sprung some mythic leak. Others are harder to convey in a high-concept pitch. When I visited the studio, Eliasson was working on a commission for the Fondation Louis Vuit...
