Fringe Projects 2016: Small IS beautiful by artist Siebren Versteeg

Sep 8 - 12, 2016

Small IS beautiful is a public artwork situated on the exterior of the InterContinental Miami. Versteeg will present the entire text of the book “Small is Beautiful: A Study of Economics as if People Mattered” by E.F. Schumacher word for word. For six evenings, large letters will scroll down the sides of the hotel at a pace that is comfortable to read, offering a complete public reading visible for miles on Miami’s skyline. This renowned book has been a resource for economists, business strategists and politicians alike to promote environmentalism and balance between economic growth and the costs of globalism on society.

Siebren Versteeg, b. 1971 holds a Masters of Fine Arts from University of Illinois at Chicago and a Bachelors of Fine Arts from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He was a participant of the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. Exhibitions include The Way of the Shovel: Art as Archaeology at The Museum of Contemporary Art (Chicago), CAUTION! Things may appear different than they are at Offen Aug AEG (Nurnberg, Germany), Grid’s World at Locust Projects (Miami), and Color Line at Outpost (Ridgewood, NY), among others.
