In The Press: Sarah Sze in The New York Times

September 22, 2010

Recontextualizing everyday objects like milk cartons and toothpicks, alumnus Sarah Sze (MFA 1997 Fine Arts) created meticulous and colorful installations for her self-titled exhibition currently up at Tonya Bonakdar Gallery. With soaring structures and intricate details, the installations play with scale and perspective to invite multiple viewing points.

T: The New York Times Style Magazine says of one of the installations, Uncountables, “It is awesome, a paradise for clutter queens, a gravity-defying monument to those of us compelled to find a use for all the disposables that we accumulate in the course of a day and can never bring ourselves to throw away.”

“Sarah Sze” runs through Saturday, October 23, at 531 West 21st Street.
