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! You can see her work on view now at the Milwaukee Art Museum.
Makes a lot of really complex installations where she repeatedly uses common small objects to build larger pieces. Very beautiful, delicate but massive work. You can watch a tv story about her installations here.
Take a behind-the-scene’s look at our Booth B20 at Art Basel! We hope you can stop by to view works by Alexander Calder, Tara Donovan, Zhang Xiaogang, Robert Irwin, Zhang Huan, Keith Tyson, and Claes Oldenburg…just to name a few!

As part of their Currents Series, The Milwaukee Art Museum

Tara Donovan on the plastic-rod piece seen here, “There are steel armatures inside. You need forklifts and chain hoists to move them. We had to figure how we could make them and how we could lift them. There was a lot of problem-solving involved. I wouldn’t say it’s efficient to do these things. It takes an army and it takes time, because everything is hand-made. But the making is the reward.”
Currents 35: Tara Donovan runs through Oct. 7 at the Milwaukee Art Museum.

Happy International Women’s Day! To celebrate we will be sharing works from our female artists all day!
First we will look at Tara Donovan. This time last year we exhibited Tara Donovan: Untitled (Mylar) at our 22nd Street location. In this installation, sheets of Mylar grow into towering organic structures rising up to approximately 11 feet tall. Watch for yourself how light plays a pivotal role in this installation.
