A special event in conjunction with the fall Great Hall Exhibition, EXPAND//FOLD//COLLAPSE//. Sculptures by Marta Chilindrón

Embracing the instability of perspective and form, New York artist Marta Chilindrón (b. 1951, Buenos Aires) creates manipulable sculptures in transparent and colored acrylics. Adapted from such basic geometric shapes as spheres, cubes, and pyramids, her artworks conceal their identity as complex, kinetic constructions. Constructed from multiple panels connected by hinges, Chilindron’s sculptures are charged with transformative potential that, when activated by the viewer, cause the works to expand//fold//collapse.
