Sarah Sze: Infinite Line
Sarah Sze: Infinite Line is the first exhibition to focus specifically on Sarah Sze's process. It is an exploration of line, literally and figuratively, across mediums from drawings to sculpture to installation. Initially trained in architecture, Sze explores the ways space is both represented and experienced in two and three dimensions.
Known for her installations, Sze utilizes everyday materials such as disposable plastic eating utensils, notepads, scissors and ladders, among other objects. The exhibition comprises two-dimensional works on paper and a new, large-scale site-specific installation in which she creates a complex web of materials that visually engages the architectural dynamic of a space and invites viewers to reevaluate their relation to their surroundings.
Critical support for Sarah Sze: Infinite Line has been provided by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.
This project is supported in part by a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services.
Additional support is provided by Ed Cohen and Victoria Shaw.
