Wednesday, November 30, 8-11pm – Bass Museum of Art, 2100 Collins Ave, Miami Beach
The Bass Museum of Art is pleased to present its latest exhibition, Erwin Wurm: Beauty Business, making its debut during Art Basel Miami Beach 2011 with art and sculpture by artist Erwin Wurm. Wurm, an artist living and working in Vienna, combines various art forms: sculpture, photography and performance into a unique personal view of the everyday world. Drawing on history, humor and philosophy, Wurm creates light-hearted artworks with at times serious messages. His new sculptural works which have a grand theatrical scale and were created specifically for this exhibition, invite the viewer to interact and participate. Wurmâ€™s smaller-scale Drinking Sculpture series ask the audience to engage and they literally do; it is a bar. The viewer can open drawers and interact with the piece.
Erwin Wurm: Beauty Business will be on view during Art Basel Miami Beach 2011. Special museum hours will be: Thursday, December 1 through Sunday, December 4, 2011, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and regular museum hours thereafter. The exhibition runs through March 4th, 2012.
