Celebrated for her intricate multimedia installations, in recent years American artist Sarah Sze has returned to painting. New wall-based works continue her decades-long exploration of the ways in which the proliferation of images – printed in magazines and newspapers, gleaned from the Web and television, intercepted from outer space, and ultimately imprinted on our conscious and unconscious selves – fundamentally changes our relationship to physical objects, memories, and time.
This summer (opened 26 June 2021) Sarah Sze: Fallen Sky, a permanent, site-specific sculpture and exhibition featuring the panoramic work Fifth Season, opened at Storm King Art Center, New Windsor, NY. Forthcoming institutional exhibitions include On the Basis of Art: 150 Years of Women at Yale, a group exhibition, opening 10 September 2021 at Yale University Art Gallery. Seamless, 1999, is currently on view at Tate Modern until October 2022.
