View an Asawa Installation

In 2006, Daniell Cornell curated an exhibition he titled The Sculpture of Ruth Asawa: Contours in the Air at the de Young Museum in San Francisco. It was the first complete retrospective of Asawa’s career. These photos are from that exhibition.

Here’s a taste of what it was like to wander through the different rooms, experiencing the play of light and shadow, surrounded by her work.
