"On and Beyond Number 197": Artist Talk by Leonardo Drew
This event is expired.
Using off-the-shelf-materials and the occasional found object, Leonardo Drew creates sculptures and installations whose metaphorical power is located within his labor-intensive manipulation of materials and the spatial dynamics of his compositions. For the de Young’s atrium, Drew has conceived of the expansive installation Number 197. Spanning three walls, it comprises a multitude of sculptural elements created and arranged in response to the unique context of the de Young’s landmark architecture. His is the first of a series of site-specific artwork commissioned for the museum as part of the Fine Arts Museums' new contemporary arts initiative.
This event is free and open to the public. Seating is limited.
