Michael Asher, Untitled (1974. Installation view, Claire Copley Gallery, Los Angeles)
Michael Asher (July 15, 1943-October 14, 2012)
“Responsibility is not attendant. In beginning to think about a work, I try first to be accountable for its reception and distribution.” —Michael Asher, interview with the author, January 23, 2011
Rather than designing new art objects, Asher typically altered the existing environment, by repositioning or removing artworks, walls, facades, etc.
