Clarice Smith Distinguished Lectures in American Art
November 16, 2010, 7 p.m.
Sarah Sze constructs extraordinary sculptures through an intricate assemblage of household objects. Her site-specific installations defy gravity in towering formations of mixed materials, and the contrast between small objects and large compositions explores the boundaries between art and everyday life. Sze was born in Boston and received her MFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York. Her work has been exhibited internationally for over a decade, and she is the 2003 recipient of the MacArthur "Genius" Award. She currently lives and works in New York.
