Fasten your seatbelts. We’re heading back to the future with this retrospective of Allen Ruppersberg’s still-fresh multimedia works. From an assemblage of blinding neon posters (The Singing Project) to more traditionally conceptual work (e.g., an aquarium serving as a luminous blank canvas), this exhibition covers more than 30 years of the his work, which has a distinctive eye toward mass culture. Installations. Photo narratives. Drawings. Films. This collection has it all, including You & Me, a public artwork first shown as a billboard on the High Line in New York City. Dig through the layers or dwell on the surface quality. There’s much to behold.
