April 12 , 13, and 15
He’s reserved and quietly driven; she was energetic and outspoken. Together, Claes Oldenburg and his wife and artistic collaborator, Coosje van Bruggen ( 1942-2009) explored the mystery and power of everyday objects by changing their sizes, shapes, and textures in surprising and unsettling ways. The couple also collaborated on many projects with American architect Frank Gehry. This film highlights various works from conception to installation, including Spoonbridge and Cherry in Minneapolis, Dropped Bowl with Scattered Slices and Peels in Miami, Knifeship at the Guggenheim Museum in New York and Binocular Building in Venice, California.
