The world’s only permanent projected public art display will be showcasing the bold, timely and rousing work of Barbara Kruger every night at 7:30 and 8 p.m. from Sept. 17 through Nov. 25. The show is called Untitled (Questions), a series of projections that ask a variety of provocative questions meant to illicit thoughtful consideration from the viewer. As you surely know, Kruger is known the world over as an incisive critic of popular culture. Art on theMART hopes to emphasize Kruger’s voice as one that is particularly resonant, courageous and crucial in a time where so much unrest and anxiety afflict our nation.
This art display is shown in a prominent walkway along the banks of the Chicago River, free to the public, and coincides with the Art Institute of Chicago’s presentation of Thinking of You. I Mean Me. I Mean You., an in-depth look at four decades of Kruger’s practice, the largest and most comprehensive presentation of Kruger’s work in 20 years.
