After last week’s announcement of the participating artists in the 2014 Whitney Biennial, we bring you new work form one of the exhibition’s most mutlifaceted. Tony Tasset, who works in various multimedia disciplines, completed a 30-foot version of his work Eye, in downtown Dallas, Texas.
As part of the Joule Hotel’s apparently “expanding art collection,” Tasset completed the sculpture in a vacant lot across the street from the hotel. It is modeled after the artist’s own eye. It is terrifying.
Tasset’s involvement with the Whitney Biennial will be an offsite public art project the details of which have not yet been released. If you’re not familiar with his work, it can be viewed in permanent collections at the Art Institute of Chicago, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, and the San Francisco Museum of Art.
