The critic Michael Fried notoriously criticized minimalism for being too theatrical; for putting the viewer on stage. For his solo show ‘Interludes’ at blank projects Jared Ginsburg focuses on what happens, or rather doesn’t, between acts. Sound equipment, a proscenium arch, scratchy Cy Twombly-esque paintings – which appear to represent a redacted score for incidental music and kinetic sculptures – are amongst the elements which hover between action and inaction, much as an artwork or exhibition (as much as Fried’s viewer) might be said to perform.
