Debut solo exhibition by the eminent American artist, “David Smith. Field Work“, conceived as four chapters of work spanning over three decades (from 1933 to 1964), aims to demonstrate Smith’s diverse visual language and multifaceted creative process.
Curated by the artist’s daughters Rebecca and Candida Smith, co-presidents of the David Smith Estate, the exhibition situates itself between the drawn image and sculpted form to investigate the relationship between the two parallel practices which the artist intuitively switched back and forth as a crucible for thought and innovation.
