The exhibition features the work of 20 artists, spanning periods and styles, from the Light and Sound movement of ‘60s California to debut contemporary works. Highlights include DeWain Valentine’s Gray Column, a one-and-a-half-ton monster of resin, and Polish-German sculptor Alicja Kwade’s geometric, intricate WeltenLinie, 2017, on show for the first time since the last Venice Biennale. And speaking of the Biennale: Yayoi Kusama’s Narcissus Garden, which premiered there in 1966 (despite the artist not receiving an official invitation until 1993), is another highlight of this phenomenal collection of works that will challenge your perception of the space around you.
It’s sure to be a fitting conclusion to the Hayward’s 50th anniversary year.
