LACMA Announces First Ever Thematic Exhibition of Renowned American Sculptor David Smith


LOS ANGELES, CA.- The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) will present David Smith: Cubes and Anarchy, the first major thematic exhibition devoted to the renowned twentieth-century American sculptor David Smith (1906-65), on view April 3 through July 24, 2011, in the museum‘s new Lynda and Stewart Resnick Exhibition Pavilion. Organized by LACMA, the exhibition will bring together more than 100 works and reveal a sculptor whose identification with the working class motivated him to adopt the geometric forms of the constructivist avant-garde (modernist artists who used hard-edged geometries to express utopian optimism) from the very first years of his career in the 1930s until his untimely death in 1965. Cubes and Anarchy includes sculptures, drawings, paintings, and photographs
