"Welded! Sculpture of the Twentieth Century"
2000-05-14 until 2000-08-27
Neuberger Museum of Art
USA United States of America
A survey of welded sculpture of the twentieth century, this exhibition features a technique
emergent in and identifiable with the modern period in art history. The exhibition begins
with the work of Julio Gonzalez and continues through the accomplishments of others
such as David Smith, Theodore Roszak, Anthony Caro, Mark di Suvero, Nancy Graves,
Mel Edwards, Richard Hunt, George Rickey and John Chamberlain.
Welding will be
shown in all of its variations as cut, bent, crushed and painted metal that is stable or that
moves, that includes sound and water, that is rigidly formalistic, figurative, humorous or
playful, depending upon the individual artist's intention.
An illustrated catalogue, co-published by the Neuberger Museum of Art and Hudson Hills
Press, accompanies the exhibition, which is curated by Judy Collischan, Ph.D., Neuberger
Museum of Art Associate Curator for Curatorial Affairs. The exhibition is funded, in part,
by public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, a State agency, the Friends
of the Neuberger Museum of Art, and the Westchester Arts Council.
