Sterling Ruby, Selected Works
Currently closed to the public
Sterling Ruby, Selected Works presents a series of collages, spray paintings, prints, bronze, fabric and urethane sculptures from the artist’s interdisciplinary repertoire.
Ruby’s critique of minimalism and its repressive and rigid lines have resulted in his exploitation of the limitations of form, scale and materials. His highly diverse works unapologetically deal with the constant conflicts of contemporary society, specifically the dynamics between the desires of the individual versus the confines of societal structure.
This exhibition presents key works from Sterling Ruby’s vast repertoire and celebrates his multidisciplinary talents, whilst equally creating a dialogue between both his older and his most recent works within the same space.
Sterling Ruby lives and works in Los Angeles, CA. Major recent solo exhibitions include, Supermax 2008, Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (2008), CHRON, Drawing Center, New York (2008), the travelling exhibition ‘Soft Work’, which opened at Centre D’Art Contemporain, Geneva, Switzerland (2012) and travelled to FRAC Champagne-Ardenne, Reims, France (2012) ‘Soft Work’ is currently on view at Bonniers Konsthall, Stockholm, Sweden and travels to Museo d’Arte Contemporanea, Rome, Italy in May 2013.
