Modern Contemporary Design


New Installation by Joel Shapiro


An installation of colourful, seemingly levitating wooden boards by Joel Shapiro appears to control the space that surrounds it. Although the elements are tightly bound in place from floor to ceiling, they give the impression of flying, falling and dancing – a sort of free fall in a white cube. Playful movement, rather than chaos, is evoked. Shapiro’s is the type of installation that is often hard to leave behind.

Artist: Joel Shapiro


New Installation is on view through March 18, 2012 at Rice University Art Gallery in Houston.
