Speculative Forms

Drawing upon the Hirshhorn’s expansive sculpture collection, this exhibition will collapse conventional art historical divisions such as figuration vs. abstraction; volumetric vs. stereometric sculpture; still vs. kinetic forms; and illusionary vs. unitary objects. Instead the selected works emphasize the relationship between the object to the eye, body and site as it has manifested in Minimalism, Op and Kinetic Art, post-Minimalism and Process Art and reconsiders ways in which these relationships can be redefined.
