Frieze Sculpture New York

April 25–June 28, 2019
Rockefeller Center, New York
www.frieze.com

Frieze, in partnership with Tishman Speyer, is launching Frieze Sculpture at Rockefeller Center, New York, to be held annually in conjunction with Frieze New York. Brett Littman, director of the Isamu Noguchi Foundation and Garden Museum in Long Island City, New York, is curating the immersive presentation, including works by Walter De Maria and Sarah Sze.

Three of the fourteen sculptures from De Maria’s Truth / Beauty series (1990–2016), which expands upon the artist’s use of permutations of rods, polygons, and numerical sequences, will be shown indoors.

Sze’s Split Stone (7:34) (2018), a natural granite boulder divided like a geode into two halves, in each of which the artist has embedded the image of a generic sunset, captured on her iPhone, will be outdoors.

TED2019: Bigger than us

April 15–19, 2019
Vancouver Convention Centre, Canada

Sarah Sze has been invited to speak at TED2019: Bigger than us. This year’s conference will focus on the political and technological turmoil of recent years and look at the deeper meaning of life. Sze’s immersive and intricate works question the value society places on objects and how objects ascribe meaning to the places and times we inhabit.

Installation

Sarah Sze
at Crypta Balbi

November 21, 2018–January 27, 2019
Museo Nazionale Romano, Crypta Balbi, Rome
www.museonazionaleromano.beniculturali.it

Sarah Sze’s Split Stone (7:34) (2018) appears amidst the historic ruins of Crypta Balbi. Opened like a geode, each half of the natural boulder reveals a sunset sky embedded in its flat surface, alluding to gongshi (scholar’s rocks) and the heavenly firmaments of Renaissance paintings. While her current exhibition at Gagosian Rome underscores and amplifies the materiality of digital images, in Split Stone (7:34), Sze takes a reverse approach by imbuing a granite boulder with a pixelated ephemerality.
