Mel Bochner: Strong Language

Mel Bochner: Strong Language

The Jewish Museum, New York

For this exhibition Tsao & McKown aimed to complement the curatorial vision of the artworks’ provocative and emotive intentions through creating a sense of place cognizant of how viewers’ physical movements affect their engagement with all and each of the artworks.

The exhibition design was a highly collaborative effort between the architects, the curators, and Mel Bochner himself. After viewing the completed installation for the first time, Mr. Bochner wrote the following:

“It’s beautiful. Subtle, but powerful. Architecture-as-spatial-choreography.”

This is Tsao & McKown’s fifth exhibition design at the Jewish Museum, following the acclaimed “Action/Abstraction” in 2008.
