The Glass House will feature two exhibitions during the 2013 season, E.V. Day: SNAP!, an exhibition for the building known as Da Monsta, as well as the debut of a new sculpture by Tauba Auerbach, Gnomon/Wave Fulgurite I.I, for the ongoing exhibition Night (1947 2015), a project that brings a single contemporary sculpture inside the Glass House itself.
E.V. DAY: SNAP!
On view May 2 - November 30, 2013
The Glass House is pleased to announce its first site-specific exhibition: SNAP! by E.V. Day. Conceived for the building known as Da Monsta - designed by Philip Johnson in 1995 as a visitor center and now a gallery - SNAP! interprets the pavilion's peculiar geometry and atmosphere both inside and out. Day has roped the exterior of Da Monsta with massive climbing webs and populated the interior with an ensemble of recent sculpture that tease out the noir qualities of Johnson's late work.
Tauba Auerbach, Gnomon/Wave Fulgurite I.I, 2013
On view May 2 – September 1, 2013
Night (1947–2015) is a sculpture-in-residence program; an unfolding sculptural exhibition inspired by the historic presence of the sculpture Night by Giacometti in the Glass House. Night will be composed of a series of works by contemporary artists that contend with the legacy of Giacometti’s sculpture and Johnson’s architectural opus. On display for three to six months at a time, the sculptures in Night (1947–2015) will “disappear” after their run, making room for new work and new absences. The second installation in this series is Gnomon/Wave Fulgurite I.I (2013) by artist Tauba Auerbach.
