ASL Tour:
David Smith: Cubes and Anarchy

FRI, Dec 16, 2011
6 pm

Join us for a free tour in American Sign Language of David Smith: Cubes and Anarchy, without voice interpretation. The tour begins at 7 pm, with a free pre-tour reception from 6–7 pm.

A fresh look at the work of the great American sculptor David Smith (1906–1965), Cubes and Anarchy offers new insights into the artist’s career-long involvement with geometric forms. Traditionally, the simplified geometry of Smith’s monumental Cubi and Zig sculptures of the 1960s has been seen as a departure from the Surrealist and Expressionistic tendencies of his earlier work. Cubes and Anarchy reveals the artist’s iconic late masterpieces to be continuations of his long-standing explanation of geometric abstraction. The show includes over sixty sculptures, drawings, and paintings, as well as rarely-seen sketchbooks and photographs.
