From February 3, 2024 until August 18, 2024, Professor Sarah Sze’s new, site-specific works will be on view in a solo exhibition at Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas, Texas. Working across painting, sculpture, video, and sound, “this extraordinary new exhibition will blur the boundaries between making and showing, process and product, digital and material ultimately to question how objects acquire their meaning,” the Center’s press release explains. 

Sze spent six months working both methodically and improvisationally at the Center in preparation for this exhibition which extends threads from her work in 2013, when she represented the United States at the Venice Art Biennale. 

The resulting exhibition includes three large-scale installations that explore the “tension between two-dimensional images and three-dimensional objects,” providing viewers with an immersive encounter with time and space as dynamically constructed experiences. 


Sarah Sze was awarded a MacArthur Fellowship in 2003. She has exhibited in museums worldwide, and her works are held in the permanent collections of prominent institutions, including the Museum of Modern Art, the Guggenheim Museum, and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; The Fondation Cartier, Paris; Tate Modern, London; The Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; and the Museum of Modern Art, Los Angeles. Sze's work has been featured in the Whitney Biennial (2000), The Carnegie International (1999), and several international Biennials, including Berlin (1998), Guangzhou (2015), Liverpool (2008), Lyon (2009), Sao Paulo (2002), and Venice (1999, 2013, and 2015). Sze has also created public works for the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, The Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, and for the High Line and the Public Art Fund in New York. In 2016, Sze completed a permanent commission for the New York Metropolitan Transit Authority's 96th Street Station of the 2nd Avenue subway line, and in 2015, Phaidon published a monograph on Sze's work as part of the Contemporary Artists Series. Sarah Sze received her BFA from Yale University (1991) and her MFA from the School of Visual Arts (1997). She was born in Boston, Massachusetts and lives and works in New York.
