Talking Continents

December 2, 2017 through April 15, 2018
Overview

Internationally celebrated artist Jaume Plensa is known for his poetic approach to sculpture. He produces works of art that evoke silence and inward reflection, engaging in a creative practice informed by his deep interest in the physical manifestation of spiritual energy. On view in the museum’s State Street Gallery, Jaume Plensa: Talking Continents is an enveloping installation of suspended steel forms that appear to transcend their own physical weight and volume, and instead convey lightness, translucence, and fluidity. In keeping with the artist’s concept of sculpture as the spiritualization of matter, this floating body of work transforms the gallery into a space for contemplation.
