"Crossroads of American Sculpture"
2000-10-14 until 2001-01-21
Indianapolis Museum of Art
Crossroads of American Sculpture features the works of six artists whose lives are linked
by their place of birth, but more importantly, by their place in the history of 20th-century
sculpture. Through the works of Indiana-born artists David Smith, George Rickey, John
Chamberlain, Robert Indiana, William Wiley and Bruce Nauman, the story of a creative
explosion in American sculpture can be told.
Crossroads of American Sculpture examines this remarkable period, in which artists
expressed new ideas and employed new mediums—including industrial materials, words,
found objects, photography, neon, video and live performance. The exhibition features more
than 100 sculptures and 60 drawings; objects have been carefully selected to represent the
entire career of each featured artist.
Crossroads of American Sculpture was organized by the Indianapolis Museum of Art.
Curator of the exhibition is Holliday T. Day, IMA senior curator of contemporary art.
