William Wegman: Funney/Strange


Catch a view of more than 200 artworks by the celebrated artist William Wegman, whose exhibition entitled William Wegman: Funney/Strange, fills all the Wexner Center galleries. Wegman was featured in Season 1 of Art:21—Art in the Twenty-First Century.

The exhibition is a comprehensive 40-year retrospective of Wegman’s wryly amusing work and on show is photography, painting, collage and video from the 1960s to the present. Together, as written in the New York Times, these pieces offer

“a total immersion in the fruits of his inquiring mind and sardonic eye. Dogs or no dogs, Mr. Wegman is one of the most important artists to emerge from the heady experiments of the 1970s.”

And Carly Berwick, bloomberg.com

“Like Dali or Duchamp, he deploys humor to put the strangeness of everyday life into relief.”
