If you missed this show at the MOMA (and even if you did see it) I recommend hopping down to the National Gallery to see it in the fabulous classical galleries of the West Building. What a great venue for this super work!
-From the National Gallery: A native Washingtonian who has achieved international acclaim, Martin Puryear (b. 1941) has created a distinctive body of sculpture that defies categorization. Serenely quiet and poetic, his work explores natural forms and materials, especially a wide variety of woods, and it engages issues of history, culture, and identity. In the first American retrospective of the artist's work in more than 15 years, some 48 objects created between 1976 and 2007 reflect the integration of concepts of minimalism.
