An Untitled Installation Conceived by Robert Gober

Exhibition Website

Dec 15 2017 - May 13 2018

Featuring works by Albert Bierstadt, Robert Gober, Richard Prince, and Meg Webster, this exhibition is a re-presentation of Untitled Installation Conceived by Robert Gober, presented at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, in the show Utopia Post Utopia, in 1988. Like the original, the Aspen Art Museum’s iteration includes Bierstadt’s Lake Tahoe, California (1867), Gober’s wooden door and doorframe, a handwritten joke by Prince, and Webster’s Moss Bed (1986–88). Together, these disparate objects offer a space in which the viewer wrestles with reality versus appearance, and nature becomes farther and farther removed from actuality.
