Parasol Unit presents the first solo show by American artist Martin Puryear in a public institution.
On show works produced in almost 40 years of his career: about 30 works which include sculpture and works on paper.
“I value the referential quality of art, the fact that a work can allude to things or states of being without in any way representing them.”
