For over 20 years Sarah Sze (born 1969) has produced celebrated works of art, synthesizing a near boundless range of everyday materials into intricate constructions that are both delicate and overwhelming. Sze's latest site-specific installation at the Rose Art Museum, Timekeeper, combines sculpture, video and installation into a sprawling experiential work that approaches some of the most complex themes of her career: time's passage and its marking in mechanical and biological forms.
The Timekeeper installation was a catalyst for a book which explores major new ideas in Sze's work and practice. The ambitious work is extensively documented here alongside significant new texts on Sze, her work and the experience of time.

Centrifuge is a new site-specific installation by New York–based artist Sarah Sze (born 1969) in the Middle Hall of the Haus der Kunst in Munich. The piece commences from a fixed point and dynamically morphs outward into the surrounding space, shifting in scale and density as its various components unravel. Both constructed and off-the-shelf objects and materials—ranging from mirrors, wood, salt, bamboo and stainless steel to archival pigment prints, projectors and ceramics—are arranged into a series of sculptural groupings. On her approach to sculpture, Sze states in an interview with Okwui Enwezor (curator of the show), "a work should be constantly in a state of flux in terms of how it exists in space, how it exists in time; it should be unclear whether it's in a process of becoming or a process of entropy."

This catalogue accompanies an exhibition of a new work by Sarah Sze (born 1969) at The Fabric Workshop and Museum in Philadelphia. Sze's immense and intricate site-specific works are akin to drawings in space, manipulating architectural spaces to profoundly affect the way they are viewed. This work was installed on three floors of the museum, virally traversing the exhibition spaces and creating a narrative that unfolds as viewers navigate the galleries and experience Sze's reflections on time, exploration of movement and investigation of materials. Each gallery floor presents a singular experience, yet viewing all three spaces is cumulative, akin to experiencing separate acts in a theatrical production. The catalogue illustrates multiple views of each gallery floor. Along with essays by Jonathan Gilmore and Jeffery Kastner, this volume includes a 2011 essay on Sze by the late philosopher and art critic Arthur C. Danto.

Published by Gregory R. Miller & Co./The Bronx Museum of the Arts. Introduction by Holly Block, Carey Lovelace. Text by Johanna Burton, Jennifer Egan.
Sarah Sze (born 1969) has earned deserved acclaim since the late 1990s for her intricate assemblages of everyday consumer products, painstakingly arranged by hand into immense, site-specific installations that engage the viewer in a dizzying play of perspective and scale. Often every crevice of an architectural space is utilized in her complex constructions, composed of thousands of objects, works that converge at the intersection of drawing, sculpture and architecture. Sarah Sze: Triple Point is a major new publication on the work of this celebrated artist, documenting Sze’s ambitious, large-scale exhibition at the U.S. Pavilion of the 2013 Venice Biennale, with 64 pages of full-color plates and several significant new texts on Sze and her practice. Included is a conversation between the artist and Pulitzer Prize winning author Jennifer Egan, along with a short story by Egan entitled “Black Box.” Curator and scholar Johanna Burton contributes a compelling new examination of Sze’s practice, and 2013 Biennale Co-Commissioners Holly Block and Carey Lovelace provide an introduction to the project and artist. Elegantly realized by award-winning designer Takaaki Matsumoto, Sarah Sze: Triple Point is certain to be a lasting testament to the continued development of this exciting and original artist.

Sarah Sze erects vertiginous sculptural universes from common consumer products such as aspirin, foam, ladders, Q-Tips, plastic spoons, notepads, trash baskets, thimbles and wrapped candies. Always responsive to surrounding space, Sze’s rhizomatic works are sometimes described as installation rather than sculpture, but an equally close or closer relationship occurs with drawing, the focus of the Asia Society Museum’s major Sze exhibition opening in December 2011, and this new hardcover volume published for the occasion. Infinite Line is the first publication to address the relationship of Sze’s sculpture to drawing, and to explore the influence of East Asian artistic traditions on her sensibility. “How do you make a sculpture that acts like a drawing?” Sze asks with these works. “How do you make a drawing that acts like a sculpture?” Born in 1969 in Boston, Massachusetts, Sarah Sze was initially trained in architecture. She received a BA from Yale University (1991) and an MFA from the School of Visual Arts (1997). Sze has participated in numerous national and international exhibitions including at the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Carnegie Museum of Art, and in the 48th Venice Bienniale and the 2009 Biennale de Lyon. She was named a MacArthur Fellow in 2003. Currently based in New York, she teaches at Columbia University School of the Arts.

Published by Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College. Essays by Elizabeth A.T. Smith, Douglas Rushkoff. Introduction and interview by Amada Cruz.
Sarah Sze inhabits architectural spaces with a spider-like thoroughness and ingenuity, weaving fragile webs of glue threads and matchsticks around junctures of commercially-bought ephemera: Q-tips, plastic flowers, beads and baskets, paper goods, and mini-video projectors. She infiltrates every crevice and corner and explodes off of walls with a construction always spontaneously, intuitively responsive to its given environment. This catalogue documents and contextualizes the recent departure from closed environments that Sze took in creating an outdoor project at Bard College in upstate New York, a move which necessitated a subtle shift to materials which could withstand the elements. Sze has said that the exhibition space becomes a studio during her installations; here, her studio is a meadow.
