“In the fifties the abstract painter Barnett Newman once quipped that ‘sculpture is what you bump into to see a painting.’ Put crudely, sculpture for the museum-goer was a literal pain in the ass. It says much about the development of contemporary art since Newman’s time that yesterday’s insult is today’s compliment. For the sculptures and reliefs in this exhibition by Davide Balula, Isabelle Cornaro, and Rachel Harrison all in one way or another ask viewers to ‘bump into them,’ so to speak. Ironically, they do so through the very sculptural form that Newman himself (following in the footsteps of Brancusi) had rescued from the art historical grave: the monolith.”
