Julie Mehretu's Mural at Goldman Sachs, New York


Julie Mehretu, installation view of Mural, 2010, at Goldman Sachs, New York. Photos: 16 Miles [more]

There are better ways to spend $5 million than buying a single work of art. That said, if America's most notorious investment bank is intent on spending that kind of money to decorate its new office building at 200 West Street in New York, there are certainly worse artists to commission than Julie Mehretu. (The head of the commissioning committee, Jeffrey Deitch, can be thanked, in part, for that choice. The firm also funded a large Franz Ackermann mural for an incomprehensible $10 million.) Mehretu reportedly used $4 million of her handsome fee to cover fabrication costs, meaning that a fair number of assistants and supply companies made a fair amount of money as a result of the project.

The work, entitled Mural, is absurdly, gloriously gigantic, measuring 23 by 80 feet. It is fully visible from the sidewalk outside the building's lobby, though turnstiles near both entrances mean that only Goldman employees and their guests can see the work up close, which is a shame since so much of the appeal of her work is in its dense, layered intricacy. Wealthy, powerful institutions generally like large, flashy artworks, and she certainly seems to have delivered the goods. It's strange that Goldman employees supposedly don't like the work, which is one of the most fun — and painfully innocuous — pieces of art that I've seen recently.

Thanks very much..
Di zaman NOW banyak harga kitchen set bandung yang lebih memilih mendirikan usaha gerobak bandung sendiri dibanding kerja kepada orang lain. Dari semua bidang, bisnis gerobak unik bandung lah yang paling laris manis diburu orang. Oleh karena itu, bagi kamu yang ingin memulai jasa ganti kain sofa bandung harus dipikirkan dengan matang jasa pembuatan lemari di bandung agar bisa bersaing sehat dengan jasa pembuatan lemari pakaian bandung lainnya.

Nah, bisnis kuliner yang lagi ngetren sekarang itu malah furniture murah bandung. Sistemnya mereka akan berkeliling menjajakan jual furniture bandung kepada setiap orang yang lewat. Akomodasi yang digunakan tentu saja adalah kitchen set bandung, bisa ditarik mobil, sepeda atau motor. Dengan mengusung merek sambal roa tangerang, Mbak Novi sukses di bisnis sambal ikan roa palu sebagai penggemar berat sambal ikan roa.
