American artist Sarah Sze is renowned for her highly distinctive sculptures and installations involving intricate combinations of objects and media. As a new display of her work opens at Tate Modern, this is a unique chance to hear Sze discuss her acclaimed practice, in conversation with Mark Godfrey, Senior Curator of International Art at Tate Modern. The event includes an audience Q&A.
Since the late 1990s, internationally acclaimed artist Sarah Sze (b. 1969) has developed a signature visual language that challenges the static nature of sculpture. Sze draws from Modernist traditions of the found object, dismantling their authority with dynamic constellations of materials that are charged with flux, transformation and fragility.
Sarah Sze represented the United States at the Venice Biennale in 2013, and was awarded a MacArthur Fellowship in 2003, and a Radcliffe Fellowship in 2005. She has exhibited in museums worldwide, and her works are held in the permanent collections of prominent institutions, including The Museum of Modern Art, the Guggenheim Museum, and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, as well as many others. Sze was born in Boston, Massachusetts and lives and works in New York City.
