For the majority of the attendees, the genius of Robert Irwin was a bit too much to grasp.
Notice that no one is looking at the prismatic sculpture, not even the Ace employee standing to guard it. Curatorial fail.
Perhaps it’s because Super Bowl buzz is in the air, but while looking at the sculpture, I fantasized that a burly, football player would enter the space and run directly towards the column, knocking over the Ace gallery attendant and also sending the art object crashing over…. that would have been AWESOME!
