Indianapolis Museum of Art
Visitors to the IMA will be spending time sitting on the work of Jeppe Hein when his “Bench Around the Lake” debuts as part of the Virginia B. Fairbanks Art & Nature Park in June. Things will be more kinetic, though, when his “Distance” appears in the Forefront Gallery on Friday. The roller-coaster-like creation is activated by sensors that, with each visitor to the gallery, set a ball in motion over a 1,000-foot track that includes loops and twists. The track even goes through walls. Details here. For a sneak peek at the bench/sculpture, click here.
