Oppenheim speaks

Textbook conceptual artist Dennis Oppenheim is interviewed in today’s Houston Chronicle by Douglas Britt. Oppenheim’s Radiant Fountains, a series of LED-lit giant splash sculptures at Bush Intercontnental Airport are nearing completion. Asked the inevitable, "what’s an earth-art guy like you doing art in a place like this? question, Oppenheim’s answer is poignant career advice: when "all the museums that want to support you have done so, and there’s no one left, you have to go and reinvent yourself."
