> DESCRIPTION

The Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève presents the first solo exhibition in Switzerland by the Los Angeles based artist, Sterling Ruby – described by New York Times art critic Roberta Smith in a 2008 review as “one of the most interesting artists to emerge in this century”. Taking cues from artists such as Mike Kelley and Paul McCarthy, Ruby works in a variety of different media. His work is a form of assault on both materials and social power structures. The show in Geneva will focus on one significant body of work within the artist’s practice that has not yet received specific attention: the “soft sculpture”.

This exhibition is organised in collaboration with the FRAC Champagne-Ardenne (France).
