Mexico: Jorge Yazpik, Sculptures and Media

April 25 - mid July

In over three decades of artistic creation, Mexican sculptor Jorge Yázpik has challenged many of the elements that have become hallmarks of abstract sculpture. With works that can present themselves on walls, tabletops or floors, in vertical or horizontal positions (depending on the whim of the artist or the exigencies of the space), and in public works that rest casually on the ground as if they were native to their setting, Yázpik's trajectory has stitched the seam between geometric abstraction and post- minimalism.
