Steve McQueen - Remember Me Wexner Center for the Arts
In light of recent developments concerning the coronavirus (COVID-19), events, exhibitions and talks are subject to change.
An exhibition of Steve McQueen's Remember Me (2016) is on view at the Wexner Center for the Arts at the The Ohio State University.
McQueen's Remember Me (2016) is a series of neon sculptures all bearing the same plea, each uniquely penned: "remember me." Every sculpture is a mix of upper and lower case letters: some almost indecipherable, some suggesting childhood, and others suggesting boldness, fragility, desperation, or mania. The sculpture's neon elements are installed according to McQueen; therefore, they are clustered and displayed with the power source and the cascade of cords.
