The Estate of Magdalena Abakanowicz

Sep 12 — Oct 11, 2015
New York, Downtown

Marlborough is pleased to announce Unrepeatability: Abakan to Crowd, an exhibition in celebration of the 85th birthday of the Polish-born sculptor, Magdalena Abakanowicz, curated by Mary Jane Jacob. At the gallery’s Broome Street location, the exhibition continues with a solo presentation of Abakanowicz sculptures.

Marlborough's Chelsea location will present a concurrent group exhibition entitled War Games featuring the work of eight artists from subsequent generations whose work has been influenced by Abakanowicz’s groundbreaking practice. Central to this group exhibition will be her monumental wood and iron work entitled Zyk, 1989 from the artist’s War Games series.
