We need your help to cover the costs of preserving two important films about "Chaos 1" and Jean Tinguely in Columbus, Indiana (and other materials related to the collection and event)!
- The first film is John Denny’s 1974, Chaos No. 1. It includes footage of Tinguely describing his masterwork, the sculpture’s installation at the Commons, and architect Cesar Pelli explaining its role in The Commons.
- The other film was made in 1974 by the local Video Access Center and includes local reactions to the new sculpture.
With your help, these films will be screened as part of a free, community-wide event, "The Most Chaotic Tuesday," on February 23 at 6:30 pm in The Commons, located at 300 Washington Street, Columbus, Indiana.
This event will kick off the opening of the Columbus Indiana Architectural Archives (CIAA) exhibition, “Chaos in the Commons,” which highlights materials in CIAA's collection related to Tinguely and Chaos I. The exhibition and program will shed light on Pelli and Tinguely’s desire to create a common meeting place for the community.
Other events at “Most Chaotic Tuesday” will include a great opportunity to make and purchase a limited edition Chaos screen print by Matt Rust, and a display of drawings completed during last year’s “Chaotic Tuesday” program through the sponsorship of Ivy Tech’s Visual Communications Program. This event builds on Landmark Columbus’ monthly “Chaotic Tuesday” program, which is organized by Ricky Berkey.
The exhibit and event are supported by the Columbus Museum of Art and Design, The Commons, Landmark Columbus, Ivy Tech’s Visual Communications Program, and the Columbus Area Visitors Center.
