Barbara Chase-RiboudThe Pavilions, Room 1
American artist, novelist, and poet Barbara Chase-Riboud (b. 1939) creates abstract, fluid metal forms that, combined with fibers, comprise a unique visual language. Inspired by her experiences of world travel in the decades following her education in Philadelphia, New Haven, and Rome, Chase-Riboud references a wide range of cultural histories, from ancient funerary steles to prominent Black figures of the civil rights movement including Josephine Baker and Malcolm X. Beginning September 14, Glenstone will present three monumental pieces from the artist’s longstanding sculpture practice, each from a different series of works: Malcolm X, Tantra, and La Musica.
