Tomorrow is your last day to visit Zhang Xiaogang’s first series of painted bronzes. Sculpted with great clarity in a political-realist style that echoes the state-sanctioned sculptures of the Cultural Revolution, the bronzes range in size from six inches to over five feet tall.

Thank you to everyone who attended our opening of Zhang Xiaogang last Thursday! To see even more event photos from the opening please visit BFA’s website.
In case you missed Thursday’s opening, here are a few photos from Chinese artist Zhang Xiaogang’s new show at Pace Gallery. Curated by Pace’s Arne Glimcher, the show features Zhang Xiaogang’s first series of painted bronzes, which render in three dimensions the prototypical characters who inhabit his paintings. From the artist’s friends and family to Chuck Close, many attended the artist’s packed opening reception.
Please join us this evening from 6 to 8 PM for the opening reception of Zhang Xiaogang. This two-venue exhibition of new work will be on view at 508 and 510 West 25th Street, New York, from March 29th through April 27th.

At 510 West 25th Street, Pace presents Robert Irwin’s iconic acrylic columns—the last works he conceived prior to abandoning his studio practice more than fifty years ago. Rising from the concrete floor and stretching more than fifteen feet towards the skylights above, the nearly transparent prisms warp the surrounding air and space. The columns are the completion and realization of an idea conceived in 1969. We hope you can visit these works for yourself, now on view until October 20th.

Reblog of the day: If only today’s rainy NYC sky looked like Tara Donovan’s Styrofoam Cup Sculpture!
In this work Styrofoam Cup Sculpture,Tara Donovan makes a beautiful space out of an everyday object. She has included many of these seemingly banal objects in her previous works such as rolls of tape, pencils and plastic cups. Her artworks are known for suggesting the wonders of nature and creating a sense of the sublime. As Nicholas Baume, the Institute of Contemporary Art’s chief curator, describes her work, “Tara’s work isn’t ironic. It actually takes up the discourse of Minimalism. It’s about creating a system, using a structure, and repeating incremental units that can go from the finite to the seemingly infinite.” For more information on Donovan’s work, click here.

Reblog of the day! It’s not too late to get your tickets for tonight’s talk with Pace artist, Fred Wilson!
“I use beauty as a way of helping people to receive difficult or upsetting ideas. The topical issues are merely a vehicle for making one aware of one’s own perceptual shift—which is the real thrill.”
Artist Fred Wilson is our next guest - Public Art Fund Talks at The New School, March 28 @6:30pm
