The Box: From Duchamp to Horn
October 29 — December 10, 1994
Ubu Gallery presented a selection of artists’ boxes in a variety of manifestations and approaches. Through this exhibition the artists provided a means to express “the box” as a container of objects (as in Marcel Duchamp’s Boite en Valise); as a personal world (Joseph Cornell); as an entity of aggression and danger (Lucas Samaras); as an aesthetic object addressing the purity of form (Sol LeWitt); and as a disorienting, mechanical pun (Rebecca Horn).
