“His History” Feature in ART FORUM

By October 14, 2022October 25th, 2023

This July, after more than a year of working quietly as the artist-in-residence at the Fabric Workshop and Museum in Philadelphia, Jayson Musson finally revealed His History of Art, a raucous multimedia installation featuring three episodes of a sidesplitting sitcom starring Musson as Jay, a pontifical art collector in a corduroy suit, and his unlikely roommate Ollie, a permastoned puppet rabbit. Pablo Picasso, Gertrude Stein, and the Venus of Willendorf make cameos, the latter inspiring an orgy. Produced and filmed inside the museum, His History’s sets and props—which alternately needle, salute, and blaspheme the art-historical canon—remain on view. Visitors can also pore over storyboards, notes, and puppet prototypes, the guts of TV magic laid bare.
