video interview from | Culture | guardian.co.uk
He has also started the blog strictly-formal.org
with “Interviews with interesting people about the day 2 day grind of making stuff.” BUT at the moment there is only one post from june 2010.
Fred Wilson creates new exhibition contexts for the display of art and artifacts found in museum collections, along with wall labels, sound, lighting, and non-traditional pairings of objects. His installations lead viewers to recognize that changes in context create changes in meaning. While appropriating curatorial methods and strategies, Wilson maintains his subjective view of the museum environment and the works he presents. He questions—and forces the viewer to question—how curators shape interpretations of historical truth, artistic value, and the language of display, and what kinds of biases our cultural institutions express.
