Enjoy conversation, light snacks, and drinks from the cash bar at Gather by D’Amico, then take an interactive tour of the exhibition Claes Oldenburg: The Sixties.
This is the largest exhibition to date to focus on the early work of one of Pop’s most widely admired artists. Bringing together nearly 300 pieces from collections around the world, Claes Oldenburg: The Sixties showcases Oldenburg’s major bodies of work from this era, including The Street, a sculptural environment inspired by the urban landscape; The Store, which introduced his now-celebrated sculptures of food and everyday goods; and The Home, devoted to sculptures of large-scale domestic objects rendered in “soft” and “hard” versions. The show also highlights the artist’s key role in Happenings and other interdisciplinary performance art of the 1960s.
