At the Hayward gallery in London will be staged a retrospective titled “Invisible: Art about the Unseen 1957-2012“, which will exhibit the works “invisible” by renowned artists including , Yves Klein, Yoko Ono and John Motti. This is the first exhibition “unseen” in the history of Great Britain. From the title you can already guess that this collective will require an imagination quite intense of the public, given the peculiarities of the works of art, in this case, is precisely to be blank canvases, sculptures transparent, spaces and installations virtually non-existent.
Provocation, irony? A very courageous move that one of Hayward, intended to trigger a heated and vibrant debate, but also to become a must see for many curious.
There is actually a long story behind the motive of art unseen, already at the Centre Pompidou in Paris, in 2009 there was an installation of this kind, and the director of the Hayward Gallery, Ralph Rugoff, had proposed a exhibition of this kind even in San Francisco in 2005. The mastermind behind all this, can only be the artist Marcel Duchamp, creator of the ready-made and godfather of conceptual art.
In 1957 Duchamp had declared that “it is the viewer who makes the picture” and it is our subjective response to art that makes it live. We are not passive spectators of the artist’s genius, but active players that give meaning to his artistic work. Generous and creative art or simulated and deceptive art? It’s up to you to judge!
