Ugo Rondinone

My review of “Ugo Rondinone: Clockwork for Oracles” at Boston’s ICA:
New York-based Swiss artist Ugo Rondinone's installation Clockwork for Oracle. He covered the large lobby "Art Wall" with newspapers, whitewashed it, and then hung 52 candy-colored mirrors on top. It certainly brightens up the joint, and it nicely directs your gaze toward the Boston skyline behind you (as well as toward a plaque on the wall listing ICA donors). But it's a sweet nothing.
“Ugo Rondinone: Clockwork for Oracles,” Institute of Contemporary Art, 100 Northern Ave., Boston, Nov. 4, 2008, to Nov. 1, 2009.
