Exhibition Tour and Dinner with the Artist
ALIX is delighted to invite members and guests to a special evening with artist, Alice Aycock, who will guide us through her exhibition at New York’s Marlborough Gallery. Opening this October, the exhibition will consist of newly created works and drawings in which she continues her examination “of sculptural assemblages which reference waves, wind turbulence, turbines, and vortexes of energy.”
Alice is one of the most important artists working today with a noted career spanning over 40 years. She is true pioneer having made significant contributions to major 20th century movements including Minimalism and Earth Art. She is an artist whose work derives from the Constructivist tradition and is subject driven, carrying layered meanings that expand and enrich the viewers’ experience
Large scale outdoor works by the artist can be seen in cities around the country and beyond. In 2014, New Yorkers were able to enjoy an installation of monumental sculpture along the meridians of Park Avenue entitled Park Avenue Paper Chase, 2014, about which the artist has said“I tried to visualize the movement of wind energy as it flowed up and down the Avenue creating random whirlpools,” she goes on, “touching down here and there and sometimes forming dynamic three-dimensional massing of forms. One of the works, in particular, references the expressive quality of wind through drapery and the chaotic beauty of fluid/flow dynamics. As much as the sculptures are obviously placed on the mall, I wanted the work to have a random, haphazard quality-in some cases, piling up on itself, in others spinning off into the air.”
We know that you will find our evening with Alice Aycock to be quite educational and entertaining during our gallery visit and as we continue our conversation over dinner.
In the ALIX tradition, our events are limited in size to enable an intimate experience, so please let us know of your interest as soon as possible.
