Robert Morris’s 1971 installation of raw unfinished materials titled “Neo Classic” was originally shown at what was then known as the Tate Britain. It was abruptly closed after 4 days. Reportedly the gallery staff were “not able to cope with the frantic means of emotional release that the exhibition became … pandemonium broke out” reported the Times in 1971. These amazing photographs capture the original installation. The Tate recreated this exhibition in 2009 using contemporary materials and called it “Bodyspacemotionthings”.
FOR CREATIVE INSPIRATION
In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the third in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. Episode Three features 16-year old Melbourne-based producer, Gab Strum (aka Japanese Wallpaper), who has racked up thousands of plays over the past year or so via a number of well-blogged remixes ranging from City Calm Down and The Townhouses to bootlegs of The xx and Bon Iver.
