Speculative Forms

June 16, 2014 – April 17, 2016

Museum: Hirshhorn Museum & Sculpture Garden

Location: Second Level

Drawing upon the Hirshhorn’s expansive sculpture collection, this exhibition collapses such conventional art historical divisions 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.


Reg Butler, Family Group, 1948
