Barry X Ball: Remaking Sculpture

January 25, 2020 - April 19, 2020

Since 1997, Barry X Ball has adapted innovative technologies and traditional techniques to make carefully honed sculptures in semi-precious stones—rarely used due to their difficulty to carve and lack of consistency—that push the physical and conceptual boundaries of sculpture. The artist reinvents traditional sculptural formats and existing art historical landmarks using state-of-the-art, 3D scanning technology, computer-aided modeling software, and CNC milling machines, in combination with centuries-old craft techniques requiring thousands of hours of detailed handwork. Barry X Ball: Remaking Sculpture is the artist’s first major U.S. museum survey.

Harry Bertoia

September 19, 2020 - January 10, 2021

Italian-born, American artist Harry Bertoia (1915–1978) was one of the most prolific, innovative artists of the postwar period. Trained at the Cranbrook Academy of Art, where he met future colleagues and collaborators Charles and Ray Eames, Florence Knoll, and Eero Saarinen, he went on to make one-of-a kind jewelry, design iconic chairs, create thousands of unique sculptures including large-scale commissions for significant buildings, and forward the use of sound as sculptural material. His work speaks to the confluence of numerous fields of endeavor but is united throughout by a sculptural approach to making and an experimental embrace of metal.
