Show Don’t Tell

Ten Works of Art

Blah blah blah. I’ve done the ten books meme. I may have listed ten movies, ten albums, ten of everything several times; but I’ve never really gotten to thinking about ten works of art that got me into doing what I’m doing now – with the writing and the MA.

Anyway:

  1. Orlan, The Reincarnation of Saint Orlan, 1990
  2. Isabel and Alfredo Aquilizan, Mabini Art Project, 2011
  3. Robert Longo, Men in the Cities, 1979
  4. Chto Delat?, The Tower: A Songspiel
  5. Cindy Sherman, Untitled Film Stills, 1977-1980
  6. Colin Gray, Heaven and Hull, 1990
  7. Olafur Eliasson, Take Your Time SF MoMA, 2007 and MC Chicago, 2009
    Not so much a single work as an entire exhibition that took up several floors of each museum, but what the hell:
  8. Tania Bruguera, Tatlin’s Whisper #5, 2008
  9. Gerry Alanguilan, Wasted, 1998 (1994-1996)
  10. Jun Yang, A Short Story on Forgetting and Remembering, 2007
