"We wanted to explore how different artists have thought about something that’s invisible," says Elyse Goldberg, one of the exhibition’s curators. "The ineffable air."
To that end, the works cut a wide swath, ranging from paintings by Marcel Duchamp and Damien Hirst to Marina Abramovic’s video piece, "Breathing In/Breathing Out." In it, she and her ex-husband breathe into each other’s mouths until they pass out. Ann Hamilton’s video shows her balancing a ping-pong ball on a pipe, while Robert Gober’s installation reveals a sky diorama as seen through a prison window.
Other featured artists include Erick Swenson, Jenny Holzer, Janine Antoni, Dennis Oppenheim, Ann Hamilton and Ed Ruscha.
