Exhibition Announcement: “Hanging Islands”

“Inspired by presentations of single-room artworks at the Dwan Gallery (1959–1971) and the exhibition Spaces (1969–1970) at the Museum of Modern Art, this installation features five significant minimal and post-minimal sculptures; several of these works have been donated to the Gallery by Virginia Dwan or given in her honor. Charles Ross’s luminous prismatic sculpture Hanging Islands, first shown at Finch College Museum of Art in New York in 1967 are refabricated by the artist for this presentation.”
