Untitled

After exploring the permanent collection of SFMOMA both in person and virtually I became curious about the number of artworks in the collection which are “untitled.” While accumulating all of the “untitled” works from SFMOMA’s website, which lists many of the permanent collection online, I started thinking about why so many artworks end up without a title. Some might say it’s a sign of laziness and others will say that an “untitled” artwork leaves the smallest distraction for the interpretation of it. Besides these two more obvious arguments, I did discover that there are hardly any pieces or documents in the Architecture and Design collection that are untitled, and it seems to be more common to “untitle” a photograph than any other media in the collection, which in some way seems a little backwards, given the number of photographs that a photographer deals with in his or her practice.

There’s no doubt the number of “untitled” artworks is big; please see for yourself below and enjoy.

Mads Lynnerup was born in Copenhagen, Denmark (1976) and lives and works in Copenhagen and New York. He recently completed a MFA from Columbia University and received a BFA from San Francisco Art Institute in 2001. He has shown his work at the Schirn Kunsthalle, Frankfurt, Germany; The Mori Art Museum, Tokyo; P.S. 1, New York; Zacheta National Gallery of Art, Warsaw, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and is in the collections of the Blanton Museum of Art, Miami Art Museum, Orange County Museum of Art and the San Jose Museum of Modern Art.

Lynnerup poses more questions than he answers. His artistic practice involves a kind of hacking activity, whereby he feeds alternative messages and prods into the information stream that, over time, we have blindly come to accept. Slightly jolted and puzzled by his message, we find ourselves prodded into reflection. Lynnerup’s perceptive gaze and pervasive humor forms the foundation of an artistic practice that likes turning things on their head. (Matthias Hvass Borello)

    iNTERESTING WORKS AND DEDICATED LIBRARIANS PRESERVE THE REAL ART OF WORSHIP.

  2. Rudolf Frieling Says:

    Mads, this is wonderful. I love databases for exactly this. But now we also want to hear from you (or your mother) a related theory or at least an interpretation. Make some sense out it…

  3. Nancy Ewart Says:

    This is simply amazing – what a lot of work! I never suspected that so many works were titled “untitled.” That will teach me to be more creative when I title my pieces.

  4. Fernando Valenzuela Says:

    Niklas Luhmann had an interesting theory about this, which he published as “Ohne Titel – wie so?” back in 1992! Text available at: http://www.spacetime-publishing.de/luhmann/ohne_titel.htm

  5. Ramonita Conran Says:

    Oh man, i love the feather bouquet, but me and my vegetarian methods will not let me have ‘em. But, as a result of a Google search for synthetic feathers, here is one supply recommended on DeviantArt that I hadn’t believed of: “Pluck a synthetic bird.”
