On May 1, Pulitzer Arts Foundation celebrates the opening of its newly constructed galleries with solo exhibitions of Alexander Calder, Richard Tuttle, and Fred Sandback, and the debut of the program series Press Play.
Presented in the Pulitzer’s light-filled upper galleries, Calder Lightness conveys a sense of weightlessness through the artist’s iconic hanging mobiles, standing mobiles, and constellations. Occupying one of the new galleries, Fred Sandback 64 Three-Part Pieces features three tightly drawn lines of yarn, which can be presented in sixty-four different configurations involving the walls and floor. In the adjacent lower level gallery is Richard Tuttle Wire Pieces; installed by the artist, the exhibition is a focused presentation of works from 1972, which use line and volume to form a multi-layered sculptural experience.
Expanding on the exhibitions’ exploration of space is the program series Press Play, which invites visitors to experience the building through sound. The first of these programs will take place at the Pulitzer’s opening reception on May 1, with a special commission composed and directed by David Lang and performed by female members of local choral groups. Other programs in the series include a residency and performance by sound artist Chris Kallmyer, drawing and hip hop meditation classes, movement classes for babies, poetry readings, and more.
