John McCracken
Early Sculpture

On September 9th, Zwirner & Wirth will present an exhibition of early sculptures from the 1960s and early 1970s by the American artist John McCracken. The exhibition will comprise a selection of significant works from the period during which McCracken rose to prominence with his monochromatic geometric sculptures.


The works assembled, which include a group of wall reliefs, pedestal works, planks, and a large freestanding cube, will highlight McCracken's early experiments with fundamental, architectonic forms and vibrant reflective surfaces. Though the artist's recent work has been exhibited of late, this will be the first exhibition in New York since the 1960s to focus on McCracken's early sculpture, illustrating the beginning of his continued investigation of reduced geometric form and saturated color.
