Frank Gehry’s immersive installation Wishful Thinking (2021) will be installed in BP Hall at Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, following its debut at Gagosian, Beverly Hills, last yearBased on a scene from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, the work depicts the Mad Hatter’s tea party as a group of ten surreal figures, twice life-size. Fashioned from brilliantly painted metal, Gehry’s abstracted interpretations of Lewis Carroll’s characters surround an internally lit table, the glowing heart of the scene. Three overlapping woven steel “tapestries” of trees evoke the episode’s forest setting, while a mirror on the opposite wall implicates the viewer. The crumpled surfaces of Wishful Thinking’s figures establish a new visual connection with some of Gehry’s best-known designs. The installation will be free and open to the public.
