Mark di Suvero

Recent Sculpture

September 4 – October 18, 2003

 

John Berggruen Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of recent sculpture by Mark di Suvero. This exhibition opens Thursday, September 4th, and will run through Saturday, October 18th.

 

Mark di Suvero, who was born in Shanghai, China, and raised in San Francisco, is most renowned for his monumental abstract steel public sculptures. His works, often made of I-beams and other industrial and found materials, continually change as one walks around the pieces and as the moving parts of the works themselves swing, rotate, tilt and rock. Approximately ten medium-scale steel works will be on view by this internationally acclaimed artist. These most recent works were all created in his studios in Long Island City, New York, and in Petaluma, California.

 

Mark di Suvero's work has been celebrated in city-wide exhibitions in each of the boroughs of New York City for his retrospective at the Whitney Museum of American Art in 1975-76, in Venice in conjunction with the 1995 Biennale, in Paris (1997), Nice and Valence, France, and in Stuttgart, Germany. Di Suvero has also had several major exhibitions at the outdoor sculpture park, Storm King Art Center, in Mountainville, New York where his work remains on view to the public.

 

A reception for the artist will be held on Thursday, September 4th, from 5:30pm to 7:30pm.
