Bobbie and Mike Wilsey Distinguished Lecture for 2018: Sarah Sze

Thursday May 10, 2018 | 6:00PM-7:30PM

Description

Since the late 1990s, internationally acclaimed artist Sarah Sze (b. 1969) has developed a signature visual language that challenges the static nature of sculpture. Sze draws from Modernist traditions of the found object, dismantling their authority with dynamic constellations of materials that are charged with flux, transformation and fragility.

Sarah Sze represented the United States at the Venice Biennalein 2013, and was awarded a MacArthur Fellowship in 2003, and a Radcliffe Fellowship in 2005. She has exhibited in museums worldwide, and her works are held in the permanent collections of prominent institutions, including The Museum of Modern Art, the Guggenheim Museum, and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, as well as many others. Sze was born in Boston, Massachusetts and lives and works in New York City.
