The Faulconer Gallery at Grinnell College is hosting “Archipenko: A Modern Legacy,” a major traveling retrospective of more than 60 sculptures, mixed media reliefs and works on paper by Ukrainian-born sculptor Alexander Archipenko (1887-1964).
The exhibition spans Archipenko’s career, featuring works from major museum and private collections, as well as never-before exhibited examples from Archipenko’s archives. It highlights Archipenko’s vision as an innovator with both materials and forms in modern sculpture. He based most of his work on the human figure but drew on modern art principles to abstract the figure.
The travelling exhibition was organized by International Arts and Artists in Washington, D.C., a nonprofit arts service organization dedicated to increasing cross-cultural understanding and exposure to the arts internationally, in collaboration with the Archipenko Foundation.
The Gallery will host a series of events throughout the exhibition including gallery talks, concerts, and even yoga classes. For a complete listing of activities, please visit the the exhibition web page.
The Falconer Gallery is located on the Grinnell College campus at the Bucksbaum Center for the Arts. The Gallery is open daily from 11:00 am-5:00 pm. It is closed on major holidays.
