FRIDAY, APRIL 12
Opening: Alicja Kwade at 303 Gallery
The Polish artist Alicja Kwade trades in sculptures and installations that, using a variety of materials, investigate issues of time and perception. For this upcoming exhibition, Kwade presents a freestanding sculpture made out of interlocking steel frames, each of them weighted with stones. According to a release, during the experience of walking through the frame, “the shapes themselves seem unable and arbitrary vis-a-vis the frame’s interference, with these vacillating perspectives calling into question whether gravity or perception is holding them in place.” There will also be a nine-part mixed media work and a sculpture that replicates a boulder using 3D printing technology. The show comes as Kwade readies a new commission for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s roof.
303 Gallery, 555 West 21st Street, 6–8 p.m.
