How Much Would You Pay for Nothing?
I received an e-mail from a friend today who recently saw the Big Nothing exhibition in Philadelphia. He writes:
I went to the ICA's Big Nothing. I thought about buying a t-shirt, as the logo is cool, but $20 for a "big nothing" seemed a bit steep. And that's the rub on conceptualism, isn't it? What exactly are we paying for?A good point. When it's done well, conceptualism can be powerful, thought provoking, and even fun. But it's even more fun when someone else has footed the bill.
