More on Tino Sehgal as He Exits the Guggenheim

Just when I thought it was safe to quit mulling over Tino Sehgal’s performance art at the Guggenheim, I discovered one last art review in a stack of magazines I was about to throw out. New York Magazine’s Jerry Saltz’s (Feb.15, 2010) discussion of This Progress brought to light that Sehgal trained each of those chatty docents – called “interpreters” – whose ages grew progressively older as we reached the top of the ramp. I thoroughly enjoyed the element of surprise that I experienced at the exhibit when I visited it back in February and I love Saltz’s comment that “it sometimes feels like you’ve stepped into a Monty Python sketch.”  Well, at least they won’t have to call in a moving company to remove the exhibit today.
