BLANK ONE GALLERY
ORGANIZED BY CURATORIAL MANAGER LAURA BURKHALTERThis exhibition highlights Oldenburg’s strong presence in both the Art Center’s collections and the city of Des Moines. It will contain all of the Art Center’s works by Oldenburg with the exception of the massive Threeway Plug, Scale A (Soft), Prototype in Blue, which will be on view in the lower level of the Meier building. Prints, drawings, cardboard sculpture, and a model for Des Moines’ large public work Crusoe’s Umbrella will be featured. Justin Favela, whose work will be shown in the Meredith Gallery and Meier atrium this summer and autumn in Justin Favela: Central American, is the inspiration for this presentation, as Oldenburg’s soft sculptures and images of food are influential to his own cardboard and paper art.
