The second installment in the New Work series, this exhibition marks the West Coast debut of Brooklyn-based sculptor Rachel Harrison. Incorporating diverse and unusual materials such as commodity goods, video images, and lumpy forms coated in cement and bright paint, Harrison's eccentric sculptures draw upon major artistic movements of the 20th century, from Pop art to Minimalism. Positioned somewhere between the handmade and the readymade, these hybrid constructions recast the status of sculpture today.
The New Work series is generously supported by Collectors Forum, an auxiliary of SFMOMA and the founding patron of the series. Major funding is also provided by Mimi and Peter Haas, Nancy and Steven Oliver, Robin Wright, and the Betlach Family Foundation.
