Read a review of our Sui Jianguo exhibition in the Los Angeles Times!
Searing and concise, the sculptures satisfy that desire — arguably burdensome for both practitioner and audience — for work that is emblematic and at least vaguely didactic.

If the earlier works hinged on notions of control, these celebrated process, improvisation, freedom.
