An exhibition of sculpture and drawings by the Polish artist Magdalena Abakanowicz (1930-2017). Spanning 40 years and working across a wide variety of material, the show stands as testament to a towering figure of 20th century art.

About

A relentless innovator, Abakanowicz’s alchemical transformations of humble materials like rope, burlap, stone and sisal into monumental, moving expressions of power, loss, violence and healing bespeak both her resourcefulness and ambition. Working in these mediums, which were often all that were available in Soviet-controlled Poland and at the time pejoratively associated with craft, the artist claimed a transformative power inherent in the feminine that courses through these works and transcends physicality.
