Installed in the Museum’s Sculpture Garden, this exhibition features approximately 30 sculptures by Mexico City-born, New York City-based artist Bosco Sodi.
The artist’s large-scale spherical and rectangular sculptures are created from clay sourced at his studio in Oaxaca. Dried in the sun and fired in a traditional brick kiln, the resulting surfaces bear the beautiful scars of their process, each uniquely influenced by their encounter with the elements.
Focusing on material exploration, the creative gesture, and the spiritual connection between the artist and his work, Sodi seeks to transcend conceptual barriers. In these ways, Sodi’s installation relates to works by artists from the Japanese collectives Gutai and Mono-ha, whom Sodi cites as inspirations, featured in the neighboring exhibition "Slip Zone."
The exhibition will remain on display through July 10, 2022.
