Ruth Asawa

posted Oct 1, 2017, 6:16 PM by Marina G Zurkow

Ruth Asawa at David Zwirner (537 West 20th Street, Chelsea, Manhattan) through October 21.

On her sculptures:
"It is as if these are models for cells undergoing a transformation, generative organisms giving birth to a similar being. At the same time, because they are suspended, gravity is registered as an inescapable and relentless force, an invisible presence manifesting itself  on the very structure of the sculpture’s body."

Louise Bourgeois: 
An Unfolding Portrait 
September 24, 2017–January 28, 2018 

...explores the prints, books, and creative process of the celebrated sculptor Louise Bourgeois (1911–2010). Bourgeois’s printed oeuvre, a little-known aspect of her work, is vast in scope and comprises some 1,200 printed compositions, created primarily in the last two decades of her life but also at the beginning of her career, in the 1940s. The Museum of Modern Art has a prized archive of this material, and the exhibition will highlight works from the collection along with rarely seen loans. A special installation will fill the Museum’s Marron Atrium.

Screen based artworks built on game engines, thinking about new relations (Marina)
featuring the artist’s complete Emissary trilogy (2015–17), a series of live simulation works created using a video game engine. Described by the artist as “a video game that plays itself,” the works are comprised of computer-generated simulations like those used in predictive technologies for complex scenarios... Populated by a cast of characters and wildlife that interact, intervene, and recombine in open-ended narratives, Cheng’s simulations evolve endlessly as self-contained ecosystems.

At MoMA through Sept 17. Should be required! Amazing work and this pioneer in unconventional materials worked with engineers, thought deeply about interaction without ever needing to call it "new media. He was simply an avante garde artist interested in that dialogue (Marina)
