Untitled, Nero Su Bianco, 1989
Arazzo dei mille fiumi piu lunghi del mundo (Tapestry of the thousand longest rivers of the world), 1976-82
This piece, sometimes referred to as Boetti’s list, contains the names of the 1,000 longest rivers in the world in descending order—the product of 7 years of research. You might find that information today in a Wikipedia entry, but Boetti carefully lists them in this large gray and white woven piece as if to cement their existence into reality and get a tenuous handle on the staggering variety of the world.

I think I’m going to take a little break on the glass artists to present…the inspirational artists in the exhibition: Art Museum. Starting with one of my favorite conceptual photographers, Louise Lawler. Her work focuses on unconventional and rarely seen aspects of works of art. Lawler’s photography eloquently re-display’s the art for us the viewer, showing it from odd perspectives in museums, in people’s homes, amid transit, in exhibition, or being packaged.
