Defying gravity, Joel Shapiro’s large new architectural installation at Dominque Levy centers on the artist’s lifelong pre-occupation with the relationship between object and space. Large, bulky and painted in intense primary colors, Shapiro’s geometric wooden structures are suspended in weightless fluidity amid the stark white background of the serene gallery space. Never comfortable with minimalism’s credo of non-objectivity, Shapiro’s work evokes an elegant ethereality and it’s all-consuming three-dimensional monumentality invites the discovery of multiple perspectives. Don’t miss Shapiro’s curated arrangement of his iconic smaller wall sculptures on the second floor and the three floor-based works in the adjoining room. Through January 7.
