OLYMPIC SCULPTURE PARK TO BE EXHIBITED IN WHITE CUBE, GREEN MAZE AT THE CARNEGIE MUSEUM OF ART
WEISS/MANFREDI's Seattle Art Museum: Olympic Sculpture Park has been selected to participate in an upcoming exhibition curated by Raymund Ryan at the Carnegie Museum of Art. White Cube, Green Maze will be open in Pittsburgh from September 15, 2012 - January 20, 2013 and will travel internationally throughout 2013.
The exhibition will feature original process drawings by Michael Manfredi and Marion Weiss, a new exhibition model of the Sculpture Park, and new photography of the project by Dutch photographer Iwan Baan.
White Cube, Green Maze presents six innovative institutions dedicated to the experience of culture and nature. In each distinct site, architecture, the reuse of found structures, environmentalism, and artistic experimentation are combined to create museums that go beyond the traditional gallery space. Rather than any simple placement of art in nature, as with many 20th-century sculpture parks, these new art landscapes offer multiple experiences. The sites featured in the exhibition include the Olympic Sculpture Park in Seattle, WA; The Raketenstation, a former NATO missile base in Germany; the Benesse Art Site Naoshima located on an island in Japan's Inland Sea; Inhotim, a repurposed botanical garden in Brazil housing contemporary art; the Jardín Botánico at Culiacán, Mexico; and the Grand Traiano Art Complex in Italy.
