After a three-year hiatus from exhibiting work, the Bruce High Quality Foundation has a show at ACA Galleries in New York. The Brooklyn-based artist group, which values its anonymity, is known for its often-subversive installations, performances, and film works, as well as its eponymous, but now defunct, university—a free school that offered art students an alternative to formal education. “The End of Western Art” features works by its members, known as the Bruces, alongside pieces by artists to whom the works allude, such as Pablo Picasso and Marcel Duchamp.
A collector of the group’s work, Nemo Librizzi, curated the show in collaboration with ACA director Mikaela Sardo Lamarche. “Unlike other artists who are inspired by the artists who came before them and try to conceal it, [the Bruces] lay it all bare and show you the puppet strings,” Librizzi told Artnews. The exhibition will be on view until June 21.
