Martin Puryear: Multiple Dimensions

(Friday) (Monday)

Martin Puryear (b. 1941) is widely celebrated for his elegant but playful sculptures and his devotion to craft. His drawings and prints are less well known, but they are equally essential to the artist’s studio practice. Martin Puryear: Multiple Dimensions is the first exhibition to draw back the curtain on that practice and offers an unprecedented look into Puryear’s inspirations, methods, and transformative process.Martin Puryear (b. 1941) is widely celebrated for his elegant but playful sculptures and his devotion to craft.
