Sep 14, 2019 – Oct 12, 2019
The seventh-floor exhibition will showcase the evolution of Fred Wilson’s celebrated chandelier sculptures, which the artist began in 2003 when he represented the United States at the 50th Venice Biennale with Speak of Me as I Am. Since then, Wilson’s Murano glass chandeliers, with their evolving shifts in scale, materials, and complexity, have become vehicles for the artist’s meditations on blackness, death, and beauty. Installed hanging from the gallery’s 19-foot-high ceilings, the presentation will include five chandelier sculptures from the artist’s first to his most recent, conceived for the 15th Istanbul Biennial in Fall of 2017.
