Charles Ray
Second Installation

American artist Charles Ray’s (b. 1953) diverse and wide-ranging sculptural practice began in the mid-1970s. While difficult to classify, his work challenges perceptions of familiar materials, scale, and subject matter, at times conflating visual trickery with disquieting distortion. The second in a series of rotating exhibitions chronicling the artist’s career, the works installed in Room 8 were selected and installed in collaboration with the artist. On view together for the first time are Baled truck, 2014; 32 x 33 x 35 = 34 x 33 x 35, 1989; Chicken, 2007; Handheld bird, 2006; and Sleeping woman, 2012, from Glenstone’s collection, and Hand holding egg, 2007, on loan from the artist.
