Experience the union of new art and art history this Spring at the Cincinnati Art Museum in Todd Pavlisko’s Crown, March 15 through June 15, 2014. Crown is an installation based upon a staged action that took place in the Cincinnati Art Museum in 2012 in which a hired sharpshooter fired projectiles through the Schmidlapp Gallery into a brass cube placed in the center of the Great Hall. The action was captured with high speed cameras and edited into an 8-channel video that will be presented in the Schmidlapp Gallery along the same path of the projectile. This piece collapses art history into a millisecond and then expands it again, slowing down the footage as the camera travels past icons of the Cincinnati Art Museum’s collection.
