They did it again: After 2010, the art collective The Bruce High Quality Foundation once more challenges the Whitney Biennial with the Brucennial, and the 2012 edition is “harderer, betterer, fasterer, and strongerer”. The Brucennial beats the Whitney Biennial easily when it comes to the amount of paintings per wall. In “Petersburg hanging” style, the pop-up space in New York City’s Bleecker Street presents works of unknown artists next to those of famous ones like George Condo, David Salle, and Damien Hirst. This video documents the opening reception of the Brucennial, including art, flying T-Shirts, free beer, a special appearance of James Kalm and finally, a greeting into the future.
The Bruce High Quality Foundation and Vito Schnabel: The Brucennial 2012. 159 Bleecker Street, New York City, USA. Opening reception, February 29, 2012.
