Mowry Baden

Congratulations to Mowry Baden!  He was recently awarded the Guggenheim Fellowship.

This past February, I was fortunate to hear Mowry speak at a CARFAC panel on Public Art.  He  talked about his practice producing public sculptural installations.  His work involves the experience of the viewer interacting with the objects he creates.

Mr. Baden addressed the ideas of Institutional Vandalism, Public Outrage, Benign Neglect, Art as Amenity, and Self Financing Public Art.  He showed examples of his work in the U.S., as well as local art commissions in Victoria.

Mowry is speaking again this weekend, as part of Reclaim the Streets:  A Symposium on Art and Public Space at Open Space in downtown Victoria.
