Aleksandra Mir

The Most Beautiful Thing Today

NEW YORK—Pitched somewhere between the banal and the sublime, Aleksandra Mir's year-long project for White Columns billboard consists of written descriptions of scenarios that Mir considered to have been “the most beautiful thing” she happened to see on a particular day. Following no discernable schedule or chronological logic Mir occasionally replaces an existing description with one that described a more recent “beautiful thing”
