One of America’s most inventive and individual artists, with work in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art, among others, von Rydingsvard has evolved a distinctive, highly personal sculptural language that has become synonymous with cedar, the wood that lies at the heart of her practice. The exhibition features wall-mounted works, monolithic structures and other complex forms, most of which are meticulously assembled from 4” x 4” cedar beams.
A series of associated events, including an In Conversation with the artist
, accompanies the exhibition. A major publication, including an interview with the artist, is available alongside exclusive exhibition merchandise
