Nancy Rubins | Selection of Work

Presented with Gagosian

Thursday, August 3 - Sunday, August 6 | Fair Hours

Location: CenturyLink Field Event Center

Nancy Rubins is known for her large-scale assemblages of found objects. This selected presentation of studies allows for an intimate consideration of an iconic body of work. The boat forms in these configurations are organic and seemingly precarious, presented in a scale of 1 ½ inch equals 1 foot. The studies refer to a system of compression and tension utilized in the large-scale sculptures (Buckminster Fuller labeled this system tensegrity). Rubins’ maquettes and sculptures alike enjoy the ability to cantilever through space.
