NEW YORK—A gallery of glass in many whimsical forms is on view at the Brooklyn Museum. “My Way,” captures Jean-Michel Othoniel’s work over the past 25 years. The French artist’s vivid imagination is on full display in large-scale strings of colored-glass beads, a glass brick wall draped with strands of glass jewels, an ornate bed and a collection of glass jars.
According to the museum, the works “references Othoniel’s idiosyncratic path among various movements in contemporary art, including Arte Povera, Minimalism, Conceptual art, and Surrealism; he has also been influenced by artists such as Constantin Brancusi, Sophie Calle, and Félix González-Torres.”
“My Way” is on view from Aug. 17 yo Dec. 2, 2012.
