Ugo Rondinone's Hell, Yes!, 2001, neon, perspex and translucent film, 284 × 734 × 15 centimeters.
Moonrise sculptures by Ugo Rondinone at 555 Mission Street, San Francisco. The city zoning ordinance mandates that new downtown buildings must include Privately Owned Public Open Space [1].

Ugo Rondinone (born 1964) is a Swiss-born mixed-media artist living in New York. He first came to international attention during the 1990's with discursive and diverse installations. Spanning sculpture, painting, video, sound and photography his works frequently employ the experiential qualities of the everyday reflecting on the boundaries between fiction and reality.[1]

Life & Work[edit]

Ugo Rondinone was born in 1964 to Italian parents in the resort town of Brunnen, Switzerland. He studied at the Hochschule für Angewandte Kunst in Vienna, from 1986 to 1990 and in 1998 moved to New York City where he continues to live and work.[2]

Rondinone emerged onto the international art scene in the 1990's and has become one of the leading visual artists of his generation.[3] Many of his pieces coax the viewer into a meditative state like the blurred, brightly colored, concentric rings of his target-shaped paintings;[4] or his strictly black and white landscapes of gnarled trees that seem to bristle with energy.[5] His large rainbow signs are just as enigmatically alluring with their imperative affirmations of “Hell, Yes!” or “Our Magic Hour.” These signs seem to point to some hidden aspect of our reality and history.[6] One sign, “Dog Days Are Over,” presented in 1996 at Zurich's Museum für Gegenwartskunst, proclaims an end to a period of turmoil, but what that period is remains unclear.[7] The signs encapsulate and make palpable an unnamed collective desire, and, in turn, inspire a new one: to understand why this hour, for example, is so magical.

Exhibitions[edit]

He has been the subject of major solo exhibitions at the Kunsthalle, Vienna; Museo de Art Contemporaneo, Leon, Spain; Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Humlebaek, Denmark; and Sculpture Center, New York. In 2007, he represented Switzerland in the Venice Biennale. His works are in the collections of the New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York, among others.
