Ruth Asawa

The Pulitzer presents the first major U.S. museum exhibition of the work of Ruth Asawa since 2006, and the first ever outside the West Coast, where the artist lived and worked for six decades. This landmark career-spanning exhibition brings together some eighty works, comprising about sixty sculptures from the full trajectory of her career including looped wire, tied wire, cast, and electroplated works as well as twenty drawings and collages dating from her years at Black Mountain College, where she studied with Josef Albers, who inspired her interest in materials as generators of form. Together, the works in the exhibition will provide new insight into Asawa’s innovative contributions to the field of modern and contemporary sculpture. This exhibition is curated by Tamara H. Schenkenberg, Curator at the Pulitzer Arts Foundation.
