  • Ruth Asawa is renowned for her ethereal wire hangings that redefine the notion of sculpture as solid form. Her looping technique produced two works of art simultaneously—the sculpture itself and the magical shadow it casts. Recognized early in her career with solo and group exhibitions and ambitious public commissions, Asawa is now considered one of California’s most important artists.⁣⠀
⁣⠀
The daughter of Japanese immigrants, Asawa grew up on a vegetable farm in Norwalk, Los Angeles County. During World War II, she and her family were interned at the Santa Anita racetrack, where she first took art classes from professional artists, and then at Rohwer Relocation Center in Arkansas. In 1943 she was allowed to attend Milwaukee State Teachers College, and planned to become an art teacher. Unable to complete her student teacher requirement because of racial discrimination, she enrolled in the radical art experiment that was Black Mountain College in 1946, studying drawing, design, and color theory with former Bauhaus master Josef Albers. Asawa learned from him the principle of “the meandering line,” reinforcing her own beliefs about nature and creating with economy of means—two central tenets that had been evolving since her childhood. ⁣⠀
⁣⠀
"Untitled (S.027)" is an elegant expression of an early experimental form that she described as “open hyperbola forms that penetrate each other.” Visit it in the Ahmanson building, level 2. #5WomenArtists ⁣⠀

  • 340-тонный гранитный валун, который послужил основой к скульптуре "Levitated Mass" художника Майкла Хейзера. Кстати, идея работы пришла аж в далёком 1969 году. Он очень тщательно выбирал камушек)) В итоге нашел его среди заснеженных вершин Сьерра-Невады. При помощи современной большегрузной техники его спустили с высоты 1300 м.

Хайзер считал, что музеи и коллекции давно переполнены, полы прогибаются под тяжестью собранных культурных артефактов – но есть и настоящее пространство. Этот камень - критика существующих социальных условий, заставляющих художника создавать то, что отвечало бы требованиями функциональности, престижа или декоративности, и в немалой степени возлагает ответственность за это на институции, занимающиеся художественным посредничеством.
