Across three spaces in uptown and downtown Manhattan, this major exhibition spotlights the artist’s first decade in the city, in which she created sparkle and metallized knot sculptures, lozenge-shaped wax paintings, and a selection of gilded wall sculptures inspired by Greek caryatids. Taken as a whole, these bodies of work portray Benglis’s radical experiments with materials and formidable influence on contemporary sculpture, working at the forefront of post-Minimalism alongside peers Eva Hesse and Bruce Nauman.
