Let Me Know ... by RO/LU

Let Me Know …
RO/LU
2015

Let Me Know … is a potential exhibition. An exhibition that hasn't happened yet. An exhibition RO/LU hopes will happen. It is the result of a series of connections, sometimes intentional and otherwise not. Connections between RO/LU and the Walker's artist book collection, beginning with memories of Rosemary Furtak, the Walker's longtime librarian for which the book collection is named; continuing through the Walker's sculpture storage and archives; breathing as art that we can't see in the sculpture garden; coming back through time, to the history of artists young and old; living through Margit Wilson, the Walker's new librarian; and enacted in undetermined locations in the future. It is, practically speaking, a .zip file that contains images, videos, audio recordings, and text files, as well as didactics, wall labels, and a graphic identity designed by Walker Art Center designer Dante Carlos. It is priced to be accesible to most, like an out-of-print book. ​It is RO/LU's hope that the purchaser will stage this exhibition in their home, at their school, in the gallery they run, or where they work. This piece responds to works by Scott Burton, James Lee Byars, John Cage, Jean Dubuffet, Marcel Duchamp, Isa Genzken, Dan Graham, David Hammons, Eva Hesse, Rei Kawakubo, Mike Kelley, Ellsworth Kelly, Kris Martin, Bruce Nauman, Przemek Pyszczek, Robert Rauschenberg, Dieter Roth, Ed Ruscha, Kurt Schwitters, Tony Smith, Haim Steinbach, Saul Steinberg, Jo-ey Tang, Diana Thater, Paul Thek, Anne Truitt, Franz Erhard Walther, Andy Warhol, Franz West and more.
