Eva Hesse: Studiowork (Through April 10)

The German-born, American artist Eva Hesse (1936–1970) played a central role in the radical transformation of sculptural practice in the 1960s. Hesse belonged to a generation of artists, including Bruce Nauman and Andy Warhol, who expanded the conceptual and technical possibilities for art. This exhibition highlights the small-scale experimental works made from a diverse range of fragile and often ephemeral materials that reveal the inner workings of Hesse’s studio practice. Neither simply preparatory nor necessarily finished, many of these studioworks exist slightly beneath the threshold of sculpture—but also question what we think sculpture is.
