Keith Sonnier - Air to Air (1975)

samedi 26 juin 2010

During the 1960s and 1970s, contemporary artists were supposed to free themselves from art spaces, white cubes and other commodified venues in favor of out-sized artworks, outdoor events and out-of-control live performances. Not so with US artist Keith Sonnier (b.1941), who always felt at home in the art galleryÕs four walls, contrary to similar artists like Max Neuhaus or Bill Fontana. When this LP was released in 1975, Sonnier was a Leo Castelli protŽgŽ, with several solo shows in his New York gallery since 1972. At the time, Sonnier was creating multimedia installations using live video, sound transmission and light.
