Ruth Asawa: Drawing In Space

November 30, 2020 @ 8:00 am - December 19, 2020 @ 5:00 pm

While best known for her innovative wire sculptures, Asawa had a deep connection to drawing and painting and often depicted plants, flowers, and other organic forms across her work that spanned fifty years. Here, we present a selection of the artist’s smaller sculptures along with prints and works on paper, many of which have not been widely shown.

On the occasion of an installation of wire sculptures, drawings, and lithographs by Ruth Asawa at David Zwirner’s 69th Street gallery in New York, this online presentation offers a view of the investigations of material and form, often inspired by nature, that defined the artist’s career for half a century.

The gallery is open Tuesday-Saturday, 10AM–6PM.

Please note we are following these COVID-19 precautions:
– Face masks are required
– Only 6 visitors are allowed in at a time
– Observe social distancing of 6+ feet

Appointments are encouraged but not required >
