NOW – 25th July 2014 Hauser & Wirth New York, 18th Street

GO SEE THIS SHOW NOW!

Possessed of a profound material sensibility, Sterling Ruby’s art speaks in a language inspired by sub-cultural phenomena ranging from graffiti, urban gangs, and prison systems, to craft and the history of quilt-making. Ruby’s work,which encompasses nearly every medium, voraciously cycles
through the autobiographical, the art historical, and the sociological, creating layers of
reciprocal influence that radiate outward. Ruby exploits tensions within aesthetic and societal systems, recreating and drawing our attention to repressive and liberated states.

‘Sterling Ruby. SUNRISE SUNSET’, an exhibition of new works by the Los Angeles based artist. Comprised of paintings, cardboard collages, fabric collages, tapestries, ceramics, a mobile, and sculptures in metal, urethane and fabric, the exhibition will be on view through 25th July at the gallery’s downtown space at 511 West 18th Street in West Chelsea.
