DESCRIPTION

The Goss-Michael Foundation is pleased to announce an exhibition of sculptural works by one of the most influential British contemporary artists:Marc Quinn.

The GMF has partnered with The Rachofsky Collection, one of the world's foremost private collections, to produce an exceptional survey of Marc Quinn's sculptural works throughout the last decade. Through the collaboration between these two prominent private collections and/or institutions, the GMF and The Rachofsky Collection will contribute to Dallas' rise into the ranks of influential contemporary art capitals.

The GMF and The Rachofsky Collection bring together a strong array of Quinn's works dated from 1998 to present. Utilizing both traditional mediums such as bronze and marble, in addition to more innovative materials such as ice, blood, insulin and DNA Quinn breaks the boundaries of historical sculpture-making. The works included in the exhibition comment on the modern preoccupation of eternal preservation of the self and explore Quinn's obsession with the unpredictability of the human body and the dualisms that define human life, such as: spiritual and physical, surface and depth, cerebral and sexual.
