Rudolf Stingel

For a commercial solo show in 2002, Stingel covered the walls of the gallery in silver insulation panels, inviting visitors to contribute by scrawling directly into the boards.

The panels made a reappearance in a 2007 mid-career retrospective held at the Chicago MOMA and Whitney Museum.

Paired, this time, with a huge chandelier (above), the elaborate light fitting reflected (literally and metaphorically) the complex network of marks gouged into the panels' surfaces.

Visitors to the first, Chigaco leg of the show were treated to a 'blank canvas' with which to interact; in New York, the panels were reversed before installation, their upper reaches already brimming with the collaborative artwork of hundreds.
