Grounds for Sculpture

With a selection of 62 major works, Grounds For Sculpture (GFS) presents a major retrospective dedicated to the American abstract expressionist sculptor Bruce Beasley (b.1939, Los Angeles). A prolific pioneer, Beasley has been influenced by Eduardo Chillida but his work stands apart for his development of new working processes and sculptures in which material, shape, light, color, and movement achieve the emotional experience of form in space.

On view in Grounds For Sculpture's indoor galleries as well as in eight outdoor locations throughout the 42-acre landscaped park, the exhibition features Beasley's earliest breakthrough works from the 1960s made of scrap iron (which made him one of the youngest artists to be acquired by MoMA, NY), his famous cast aluminum works of the 1970s and cast acrylic sculptures of the 1970s and 80s; his stainless steel and bronze works of the 1990s to the present day. Marking Beasley's latest venture into two-dimensional media, the exhibition also features four monumental paper on canvas collages, the creation of which was aided by the use of virtual reality as a tool for drawing in space.
