Liam Gillick and Anton Vidokle, A Guiding Light, 2010
For A Guiding Light, Gillick and Vidokle invited artists Boško Blagojević, Noah Brehmer, Nadja Frank,
Shuddhabrata Sengupta, and Danna Vajda, critic Tim Griffin, and curators Anna Colin, and Shama Khanna
to consider the curatorial premise of a large scale international art exhibition: the 8th Shanghai Biennale.
The artists gathered these eight participants at a New York television studio, and, combining a curatorial text
by Gao Shiming with a structural analysis of a 1952 episode of the television soap opera Guiding Light,
staged a production that shifts between analysis and self-critique.
