Paula Cooper Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of works by Meg Webster. The exhibition will be on view from January 9 – February 9 at 534 West 21st street.
In the gallery’s front room, the artist is exhibiting a selection of works of varying scales, each formally bound by its naturally derived material. A life-sized, polished steel mirrored cruciform invites the viewer to approach it with arms outstretched, while a small copper disk, placed between one’s palms, suggests a more intimate experience.
Meg Webster’s work has been exhibited at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; the Tel Aviv Museum of Art; the Rooseum, Malmö, Sweden; the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York; and the P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center in Long Island City, New York. Her sculpture and permanent outdoor installations may be found in collections throughout the United States. Her most recent outdoor installation, Stonefield, was installed at the Hudson River Park, New York in 2010.
