OBLIQUE STRATEGIES II | January 27 - February 21, 2014
Oblique Strategies is a set of cards created by Brian Eno and Peter Schmidt first published in 1975. Each card contains a phrase or cryptic remark, which is meant to be used as a catalyst for generating or resolving work.
Artists and architects were invited to make new works, or alter old works, by responding to a randomly assigned phrase taken from the deck of cards. The show considers the structuring of dilemmas as a tool of production and the many approaches it can generate. This is the second installment of this exhibition at Pace University.
