Sterling Ruby: Acts + Table

Gagosian London Britannia Street

02 Oct 201914 Dec 2019

The exhibition and Britannia Street presents sculptures by Sterling Ruby from two series, “Acts” (2006–18) and “Tables” (2015–19). “Acts + Tables” lays out Ruby’s critique of the authoritarian, exclusionary ideological underpinnings of Minimalism. In “Acts” — short for “Absolute Contempt for Total Serenity” — Ruby captures liquid dye inside clear urethane and balances these pure prisms atop scuffed, inscribed, and spray-painted Formica bases. The exhibition also includes “Table” (Double Last Supper) (2019), the culminating work of Ruby’s “Tables”, a series that explores the concept of personal and cultural archaeology.
