Night into Day
Through April 25, 2021
Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, Paris
Sarah Sze presents two immersive installations in the gallery spaces of Jean Nouvel’s iconic building. Commissioned by the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, her new works explore how the proliferation of images—printed in magazines, gleaned from the Web, intercepted from outer space—fundamentally changes our relation to physical objects, memories, and time. The works will also engage with the materiality and history of Nouvel’s structure and its surrounding garden. Enveloping the architecture, these sculptures will alter the visitor’s sense of gravity, scale, and time, confusing the boundaries between inside and outside, mirage and reality, past and present.

Through August 8, 2021
ZKM | Center for Art and Media, Karlsruhe, Germany
This exhibition invites visitors to engage with the critical situation of the earth in a novel and diverse way and to explore new modes of coexistence between all forms of life. In order to remedy the generally prevailing disorientation and dissension in society, politics, and ecology with regard to the changing state of the planet, the exhibition project sets up an imaginary cartography, considering the earth as a network of “critical zones.” Work by Sarah Sze is included.

Images in Debris
February 6–October 4, 2020
Museum of Contemporary Art, Toronto
Sarah Sze’s Images in Debris is the first installment in The City Is a Collection, an exhibition series organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art, Toronto, that presents privately owned contemporary artworks from throughout the local community. Constellatory, monumental, intimate, and immersive, this work is one in a series of sculptures by the artist where light, movement, images, and architecture coalesce into a single, precarious equilibrium.
