Dore Ashton on Jean Tinguely's "Homage to New York"
The Gallery of Lost Art was an online exhibition that told the stories of vanished artworks. Whether destroyed, stolen, discarded or erased some of the most significant artworks of the last 100 years have been lost and can no longer be seen.
In March 1960 Jean Tinguely presented his first auto-destructive artwork Homage to New York in the sculpture garden at MoMA. The sculpture was engineered to slowly erupt into flames and disintegrate before the audience. In this film we hear from writer and critic Dore Ashton who was present on the night and witnessed the artwork partially disappear.
Not all of the artwork was destroyed and the surviving remnants of Homage to New York are now part of the collection at MoMA.
