Winter 2012 Opening Celebrations Public Reception
Preview three new exhibitions and enjoy light snacks and a cash bar. Everyone is welcome.
Visit with members, arts enthusiasts, and special guests, as you explore David Smith: Cubes and Anarchy, Sarah Morris: Points on a Line, and a new lobby installation by artist Ernst Caramelle. DJ Trueskills warms up the night with vintage soul, funk, other classic sounds. This event is free and open to the public.
Cubes and Anarchy takes a fresh look at the famed sculptor’s work, focusing on his interest in geometry. The exhibition features a number of previously unexhibited works on paper.
In her film Points on a Line, Sarah Morris takes viewers to modernist landmarks by Philip Johnson and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe while investigating the connections and power structures that shape the built environment.
Ernst Caramelle's site-specific installation transforms the Wexner Center’s lower lobby into a three-dimensional painting.
David Smith: Cubes and Anarchy was organized by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and made possible by Alice and Nahum Lainer, the National Endowment for the Arts, Gagosian Gallery, and the Steven F. Roth Family Foundation. Additional support was provided by the Steaven K. and Judith G. Jones Foundation, Myron Laskin, Agnes Gund, Dorothy R. Sherwood, Terri and Michael Smooke, the Dedalus Foundation, Ellie and Mark Lainer, and the Lipman Family Foundation.
The exhibition’s presentation at the Wexner Center is supported by an indemnity from the Federal Council on the Arts and the Humanities and a generous grant from the Jon and Mary Shirley Foundation.
