Exhibition, MCA Chicago, USA, until 4 October
Highlighted are four works across five decades that reflect the artistic attitude of placing artworks in the same physical space as the viewer, a democratised approach initiated in the 1960s. Small, medium, large, extra-large – each work is increasingly ambitious in scale, and offers a slightly different experience of sculpture and space, inviting the viewer to try it on for size. Besides a common system for labeling clothes, the title of the show also alludes to the 1995 book by architect Rem Koolhaas that explores scale in a variety of guises, from the intimate to the public, the social to the environmental.
