A Gathering: Sculpture from the Permanet Collection

A Gathering: Sculpture from the Permanent Collection includes 18 objects spanning a period of 55 years (1947-2002), highlighting the versatility of materials worked by different hands. The artists in the exhibition employ steel, aluminum, wood, and found objects to explore notions of movement, sound, origin, transformation, minimalism, and the specificity of three-dimensional objects in space. According to artist John Chamberlain, “Every material has a different density, different weight… Every hand squeezes differently. In finding your place in sculpture, you need to find the material that offers you just the right resistance. As it turns out, car metal offers me the correct resistance so that I can make a form – not overform it or underform it.” The exhibition includes sculpture that ranges from the figurative to the abstract and from the playful to the profound.


The exhibition was organized by the Neuberger Museum of Art, Purchase College, State University of New York and curated by Avis Larson, Assistant Curator. Generous support for this project is provided by the Friends of the Neuberger Museum of Art and the Purchase College Foundation.
