Whitney Signs:
David Smith: Cubes and Anarchy

SAT, Dec 3, 2011
3 pm

Whitney Signs is a free American Sign Language gallery tour with voice interpretation. Join us this month for a tour of David Smith: Cubes and Anarchy at 4 pm, with a free pre-tour reception from 3–4 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.
