Ugo Rondinone: Good Evening Beautiful Blue

The Bass

29 Oct 201719 Feb 2018

“Good Evening Beautiful Blue” is a part of a major multi-institution retrospective comprising works that span three decades of Rondinone’s practice, from the late 1990s to the present.
Spanning the entirety of the museum’s newly designed second floor, the show presents works balancing on the edge of euphoria and depression.

The exhibition centers on the work, “Vocabulary of Solitude” (2014-2016), an installation of 45 life-size clown figures, each engaged in a different everyday activity, such as sleeping, daydreaming, waking up, sitting and running.
A separate gallery presents an immersive six-channel video installation titled It’s late… (1999–2000), displaying slow-motion loops of people doing various isolated mundane tasks. On view in the third space, clockwork for oracles II (2008) is a multi-wall installation comprised of 52-mirrored windows (one for each week in the year) set against a backdrop of whitewashed pages from a local newspaper.
