A brief animated history of space sculpture by Darren Bader
Thanks to the folks at ArtNews for pointing out that Darren Bader’s piece “The Vagrant” from the 2015 Art Basel ‘Art Unlimited’ section is now online. The 13 minute animated episode looks at the history of space sculpture. Giant piñatas busted by space shuttles spew blue jeans and poison ivy. Like most of his work it hovers on the boarder of insider art jokes while managing to stay surprising and fresh. Bader is responsible for one of my favorite installations that I’ve ever seen at MoMA PS1.
