Ken Price at Hauser and Wirth
Until 4 February 2017
Sculptures and drawing by ken price, one of the most influential figures in the 20th century in ceramic arts. Finding inspiration sources such as Bauhaus, counter cultures in the 60s and jazz music, he developed a unique signature through psychedelic colour and biomorphic forms. His sculptures are developed through drawing.
'I think sculptors learn to draw so that they can see what they've been visualising. Most sculptors can draw pretty well, and they draw in illusionistic space, because if you can't draw it, you can't see it.'
Transcending Boundaries, Pace Gallery

Transcending Boundaries explores the role of digital technology in transcending the physical and conceptual boundaries that exist between different artworks, with imagery from one work breaking free of the frame and entering the space of another. The installations also dissolve distinctions between artwork and exhibition space, and involve the viewer through interactivity.
