Shut Up and Look cited in lede paragraph for this exhibition review:
Shut Up and Look is the title of a 2012 documentary film about Richard Artschwager. Six minutes in, the artist opined, “I think the objective of an artist’s making a picture is seeing how long you can get somebody to look at something.” In an era of short attention spans, looking—let alone seeing—is a challenge. Various studies—all of them inexact—suggest that the average amount of time a person spends looking at an art work in a museum is between 15 seconds and 30 seconds.
