Contemporary Sculpture (From a private collection)

Panda Takashi Murakami... Panda ( 2003, Fiberglass with antique Louis Vuitton trunk). From the exhibition Contemporary Sculpture (From a private collection) at Zwirner & Wirth Gallery in New York, NY. "...The works here are culled from a private collection that has been assembled over the last three decades. As the selection here demonstrates, this is a collection which has both depth and breadth, and which expresses simultaneously a personal vision and an acknowledgement of the multidirectional quality of the contemporary art world. Though it is only a small subset of a much larger assembly, this grouping traces several significant threads that make up the current fabric of contemporary art.
Several of the works here reveal the way that artists today reflect upon the history of abstraction, updating it for a world in which distinctions between form and matter, idea and realization, and “non-objectivity” and representation are all but moot."
