Museion invites you to an online appointment with its Thursday guided tours on the Zoom platform. On Thursday 18th February 25th February and 4th March our Museion mediators will offer the public a live exploration tour of 102 Signs for a Museum Fence, the large-scale installation by the artist Matt Mullican currently on display at Museion Passage.
The work was created in 2006 for the fence around the construction site of the new Museion building, to inform the public, through the power of its signs, that this would be a home for contemporary art. For this work, Matt Mullican (b. 1951, Santa Monica, CA) used the system of signs he has been developing since the early seventies, and with which he seeks to express his concept of the five worlds we live in – each of which is assigned a specific color. Some of these signs are self-explanatory, while others are inventions by the artist, like the signs for birth and death, or for demons and angels. The sign for human imagination is a human head with a circle inside it that can be understood as a symbolic gateway to Mullican’s “Imaginary Universe.”
The tour is free and it will have a conversational format – so the public will be able to intervene and ask questions. Thanks to the technical support of a special easel, the mediators will be able to show the viewers connected Matt Mullican’s installation that is on display at Museion.
