Established in 2009, New York (New York), United States.

Art collective.

The Bruce High Quality Foundation is an anonymous artist collective that creates installations, videos, paintings, sculptures, performances, and exhibitions. The founding members keep their identities anonymous but are known to be a group of male artists who met while obtaining their undergraduate degrees at the Cooper Union in the late 1990s. The foundation is known for its tongue-in-cheek works, which use canonical art works as the basis for humorous, prank-style images and performances: in The Gate, Not the Idea of the Thing But the Thing Itself on New York’s Waterways (2005), the collective, in a tiny boat adorned by a replica of one of Christo and Jean-Claude’s Gates, chases after Robert Smithson’s Floating Island to Travel around Manhattan Island (1970).

In 2009, the collective established the Bruce High Quality Foundation University (BHQFU), an experimental art school that offers free art classes, lectures, and workshops. The artist-taught classes offered have ranged ‘from Painting Critique’ and ‘Sex-Ed’ to ‘Humor and the Abject’ and ‘Poetic Image for the People’. The BHQFU also offers a summer residency program. The school is frequently involved in actions to protest the high cost of art education in the United States....

The energy and excitement generated by the collaborations and the performances led Rauschenberg and Klüver, the artist Robert Whitman, and the engineer Fred Waldhauer, in September 1966, to found Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.), a not-for-profit organization to promote collaborations between artists and engineers like the ones that had developed during their work on ...

Anthony Titus studied Architecture at the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art in New York, receiving his Bachelor of Architecture in 1998, and Fine Arts at the University of Chicago, obtaining a MFA in 2001. He is the founder of Anthony Titus Studio, an interdisciplinary practice that merges art and architecture.

Titus’s work is concerned with interdisciplinary practice that merges architecture, painting, collage, screen printing, and more, to create mixed media structures that explore abstract geometry, nature, and time. Hybridity and fabrication play central roles in his practice, as his mediums range from architectural assemblage objects of wood, metal, and lacquer to linen canvases covered with thick layers of acrylic. His work has been included in several prominent group exhibitions such as Vienna for Art’s Sake! (2015) at the Belvedere Museum in Vienna, in which each artist, architect, or designer received a 10 by 12 cm canvas. Titus’s canvas combined surface, material, and format to create a sense of optical buoyancy and sensual fluctuation, and was motivated by the desire to create a singular moment of visual intimacy. In ...
