The @pulitzerarts’s presentation in St. Louis of the first posthumous exhibition of Ruth Asawa’s practice has been named “this year’s most beautiful exhibition,” by the @washingtonpost. Featuring some sixty sculptural works from throughout the artist’s career, this is the first major museum exhibition dedicated to Asawa outside California, where the artist was born and spent much of her life. The works included in this show demonstrate the breadth and diversity of her looped-wire sculptures, from small spheres to long, elaborate "form within a form" compositions, in which nested shapes unfold from a single continuous line of wire. The artist’s lesser-known forms on view include hyperbolic shapes, suspended cones, and interlocking spheres. Ruth Asawa; Life’s Work is on view through February 19, 2019. See link in bio for more. ___ Pictured: Installation view, Ruth Asawa: Life’s Work, Pulitzer Arts Foundation, St. Louis, 2018. #RuthAsawa #DavidZwirner

‘Ruth Asawa.’ Truly there might be nothing better than this book, today, when our hearts are heavy after yet another senseless weekend of news of hate crimes. When we, at the library were so fortunate to spend Saturday with @katrinarodabaugh deeply discussing #mending. Mending. Repairing that which is dear, while elsewhere fresh wounds were opened. Ruth Asawa, a beloved artist, lived a practice whereby each activity of her life [‘her art, her children, her garden, her activism... grew to fuller capacity due to the existence of the others, not in spite of it’... each activity was part of a communal commitment practiced for the greater good.’] Through ongoing experience of intolerance and racism she forged a ‘universal identity’ proclaiming herself a ‘citizen of the universe.’ It is this experience and practice that was eventually expressed through her gorgeous forms. Thank you Ruth for your inspiration today. And for all you working artist moms or artists who wish to become parents but worry about the juggle- enjoy photo 9. #ruthasawa #bookoftheday #womenartists #forewordbyjonathanlaib #davidzwirnerbooks #tatterbluelibrary

"The year's most beautiful exhibition,” says Sebastian Smee of the @washingtonpost. “You don’t expect sculpture to function as a visual correlative to swimming in air. Asawa found a way and, in so doing, found her voice.” – Read the entire review of “Ruth Asawa: Life’s Work” at washingtonpost.com. #RuthAsawa — Installation view of “Ruth Asawa: Life’s Work” Main Gallery © Estate of Ruth Asawa.

Just opened this month, the @pulitzerarts in St. Louis presents the first posthumous exhibition of Ruth Asawa’s practice, featuring some sixty sculptural works from throughout her career as well as twenty paintings, drawings, and collages she created at Black Mountain College. This will also be the first major museum exhibition dedicated to Asawa outside California, where the artist lived and worked for more than sixty years after moving to San Francisco in 1949. __ “Ruth Asawa was one of the most rigorous and inventive artists of her day," states Pulitzer director Cara Starke. "With this exhibition we hope to shed light on how she came to create sculptures that are, in essence, transparent, voluminous yet light, and unique among the work of her peers." ___ Pictured from left: Installation view, Ruth Asawa: Life’s work, Pulitzer Arts Foundation, St. Louis, 2018.

Now open, work by gallery artists Ruth Asawa, On Kawara, Yayoi Kusama, Jeff Koons, and Richard Serra will be on view at the @glenstonemuseum’s long-awaited new building. “The building’s inaugural display, which will catapult the museum to the front rank of privately owned art museums worldwide, aims to demonstrate the range of the collection,” writes the @washingtonpost on the newly expanded museum. _____ Pictured from Left: Yayoi Kusama, Accumulation on Cabinet No. 1, 1963, © 2018 Yayoi Kusama, Photo by Ron Amstutz, Courtesy Glenstone Museum.

"A sixteen-year-old American saw several FBI agents take her father away. He was a truck farmer that hadn't committed any crime, but for several months, she didn't know if he was alive or dead. Then her family was forced to move away from their farm and to live in horse stables. Why? Because of the presidential Executive Order 9066. Ruth Aiko Asawa was an American, but she was also considered a 'Nisei,' a child born to Japanese immigrant parents, and as such, a security risk. All she wanted was to attend art school. After six months, they moved her from the horse stables at the Santa Anita Park ( @santaanitapark) in Arcadia, California and sent her to the Japanese American concentration camp in Rohwer, Arkansas. Even when observed by armed white guards and surrounded by a barbed-wire fence, Ruth Asawa's skills could not be held back. It might sound ironic, that the first prize she ever received was for an artwork she did of the Statue of Liberty ( @statueellisnps), in a school competition about what it means to be an American. She excelled in her art classes and with the help of a sympathetic teacher, Ruth was allowed to leave camp to continue her studies, as long as she stayed away from the coasts. Ruth eventually ended up in San Francisco, and she played a crucial role in the creation of the San Francisco School of the Arts ( @sota_shows). Her work is displayed in the collections of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum ( @guggenheim), the Whitney Museum of American Art ( @whitneymuseum), San Francisco's de Young Museum ( @deyoungmuseum), and among other places, we can also find her work right here, the San Francisco Fountain. This whimsically interrelated fountain basin features bas-relief scenes of San Francisco, but they're not all hers. Ruth cast everything in iron, but the designs were created by two hundred schoolchildren who were asked to mold images of their coast city of San Francisco." - Comrade (the human) • "Look! 👀 It has a stuffie sitting on top of a building! If it explodes, I'm sure the hoomans will blame us doggies for it! 🙄" - Sinatra _____________________________________________ 📢: In collaboration with @onlyinsf #️⃣: #AlwaysWelcome

..Exhibition "Ruth Asawa: Life's Work" __ Ruth Aiko Asawa (1926 - 2013) American artist, sculptor and one of the founders of the School of Art in San Francisco. Asawa is best known for her undulating abstract sculptures woven from wire. In 1954, Asawa was asked to explain her work for her first show at the Peridot Gallery in New York. What set her work apart from others making sculpture then was their lightness and transparency, as well as their movement since they were suspended from the ceiling. She wrote, “A woven mesh not unlike medieval mail. A continuous piece of wire, forms envelop inner forms, yet all forms are visible (transparent). The shadow will reveal an exact image of the object.” In a profound way, Asawa’s internal and external life was as seamlessly interwoven as her wire sculptures.

A few of my favorite hanging wire sculptures from American artist Ruth Asawa.. at the Armory Show 2016 & at Sotheby’s, David Zwirner Gallery (what a fabulous show!) and the Whitney in 2017.. . Asawa learned the basic technique while in Mexico where villagers used a similar technique to make baskets from galvanized wire. . Organic.. weightless.. transparent.. for me, they resemble aquatic life.. a jellyfish.. or a nest.. how about you?

I first came across the work of Ruth Asawa in 2013, and her work continues to inspire me. Glad I could experience one of her sculptures in person today. * "...the economy of a line, making something in space, enclosing it without blocking it out. It’s still transparent. I realized that if I was going to make these forms, which interlock and interweave, it can only be done with a line because a line can go anywhere..." Ruth Asawa, Untitled (S.228, Hanging Six-Lobed, Discontinuous Surface (3 sections) with Interlocked Top Section) ca. 1956. * #artinspo #ruthasawa #wiresculpture #menilcollection #drawinginstitute #houston

Dedicating this #tbt to our beloved Andrea fountain sculpted by artist Ruth Asawa. The square’s centerpiece was also once the center of a bit of controversy. Some said it was not the right fit for the public plaza and its historic design context. We humbly disagree! Andrea celebrated 50 years at Ghirardelli Square in 2018. #ruthasawa #publicart

When I write about an artist, I prefer to focus either on his or her art, or my response to it. However, I find myself so impressed by Ruth Asawa as a person, and upset the circumstances of her life, that her art fell to the wayside and gave way to angry diatribes on racism and sexism in the drafts I wrote for this post. She is so compelling as a person as well as an artist that I urge you to read up on her. And if you did not know her works on paper, I suggest you look those up, as well. I had a really hard time choosing only one piece to represent my love for — and my wish to emulate — her. This crotcheted wire sculpture, like a coral cactus made epiphytic, is different even from her hanging bulbs, which I first fell in love with. I love her consideration of the shadows the pieces produce. . Untitled (S.433, Hanging Nine Open Hyperbolic Shapes Joined Laterally), by Ruth Asawa. c. 1958. Copper wire.
