Sterling Ruby: Soft Work and CHRON II
The Fondazione Memmo and MACRO celebrate the work of German-born American artist Sterling Ruby with two parallel exhibitions.
22 May-15 Sept. MACRO Testaccio hosts Soft Work, an exhibition conceived by the Los Angeles-based artist as a single work, comprising large “soft sculptures". MACRO Testaccio, Piazza O. Giustiniani 4.
24 May-15 Sept. Fondazione Memmo presents CHRON II, featuring over 70 pieces selected by Ruby from his personal collection and representing over a decade of work. The exhibition focuses on the role of collage in his work and allows viewers to observe the influences on him, from hip-hop to horror, from prison systems to public sculpture, from arts and crafts to existentialism.
