Organized by the Walker Art Center, this first large-scale overview of Gober's oeuvre juxtaposes more than 100 drawings with examples of his sculpture, illuminating the complex psychological and formal roots of this important contemporary artist's work. Grappling with themes of childhood, memory, loss and sexuality, Gober explores a variety of mediums that probe the legacies of Surrealism, Minimalism and Conceptualism.
Robert Gober: Sculpture + Drawing was organized by the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis. It was made possible by generous support from Penny and Mike Winton.
This exhibition is part of the Museum's New Work series, which features recent or commissioned work by both younger and established artists. The exhibition is made possible by Collectors Forum, an auxiliary of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the James C. Hormel Fund.
