Meet the blps

This short video explores the origin and significance of Richard Artschwager’s blps—the artist coined the term (pronounced “blips”) in the late 1960s—which are black, lozenge-shaped marks meant to draw our attention to the places and things around us that often go unnoticed. It was produced by the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, on the occasion of retrospective Richard Artschwager! in 2013.
