Dennis Oppenheim: S-T-A-B-
September 11 to November 23, 2014

First shown in 1991 at MoMA PS1 as part of the exhibition And the Mind Grew Fingers, S- T- A- B- is an installation composed of welded rolled steel angle, steel plate and red vacuum formed letters that spell the word “stab” in fragments. S- T- A- B- can be seen as the diagram of a street fight, reflecting Oppenheim's goal to emulate the emotional, stuttered speech that occurs in extreme situations. The Bronx Museum's installation will present the entire work on its North Wing terrace.
