Gallery Tour: Oldenburg’s Festival of Living Objects

Part of Claes Oldenburg: The Sixties

Chicago-based poet Fred Schmalz has mined the Walker’s archives to find connections between texts and artworks in the exhibition Claes Oldenburg: The Sixties. Incorporating Oldenburg’s extensive writings as well as critical texts, this talk takes a poetic and engaging approach to the artist’s iconic visual subjects. Join Schmalz for a unique gallery tour highlighting responses, readings, erasures, questions, and commentary on selected works by one of Pop’s most innovative artists.

Admission is free but space is limited to 15 participants. Tickets available at the Bazinet Garden Lobby desk on a first-come, first-served basis.


Claes Oldenburg: The Sixties is organized by Museum Moderner Kunst Stiftung Ludwig Wien (MUMOK).
