Carol Bove Signing at the Whitney Shop

Saturday, November 12, from 7 - 8:30 PM, the Whitney Shop presents a book signing with artist Carol Bove, in celebration of Polka Dots, the new David Zwirner Books monograph published to accompany her current exhibition at David Zwirner Gallery. (Read more in The New York Times.)

Carol Bove Signing at the Whitney Shop

This publication offers a rare glimpse into an artist’s studio while visually exploring both the process and the finished work of one of today’s leading contemporary artists.

Built around a series of photographs by Andreas Laszlo Konrath taken over the course of multiple visits to Bove’s studio in Brooklyn, this catalogue offers a unique, behind-the-scenes look into her practice. Through the photographs, the reader experiences not only the development of her most recent body of sculptures—referred to by the artist as “collage sculptures”—but also the materials and conditions that contribute to the creation of these works. Slightly larger than human scale, the sculptures are constructed from square steel tubing—crushed into soft folds and painted in vivid colors—and assembled with found steel and other industrial elements. In contrast to Konrath’s rich and intimate photographs, also included are images of individual works shown silhouetted out of their original context, an attempt by the artist to draw the viewer away from typical ways of experiencing sculpture.

Created by the artist in close collaboration with designer Joseph Logan and published on the occasion of Bove’s eponymous show now on view at David Zwirner in New York through December 17, Polka Dots features an essay by Johanna Burton that charts the artist’s fascination with process and commitment to disrupting traditional ways of seeing. A chronology provides a summary of Bove’s exhibitions and installations in major museums and private institutions around the world, offering a thorough resource for those interested in the artist’s development across time.

This event is free and open to the public.
