> DESCRIPTION

Perhaps best-known for her brash, unfired clay sculptures of female figures, Rebecca Warren (b. 1965) has developed a body of work distinguished for its formal risk-taking and the shrewd humor with which she faces the long, male-dominated tradition of figurative sculpture. For the solo exhibition at The Renaissance Society, her first in an American museum, Warren will be presenting all new work, including roughly half a dozen floor sculptures and nine wall pieces.

The show will be presented in collaboration with The Art Institute of Chicago, where three new site-specific bronzes will be installed on the Bluhm Family Terrace above the new Renzo Piano-designed Modern Wing. Placed in the open air against the dramatic Chicago skyline, Warren’s sculptures morph and abstract the human form, providing an organic counterpoint to the linearity of the cityscape.
