The Museum of Modern Art Archives, New York

This installation, located outside the entrance to the fourth-floor Painting and Sculpture Galleries, highlights seven sculptures by Cy Twombly, all recent additions to the collection. Though best known for his paintings, Twombly has dedicated himself to making sculptures throughout his 60-year career. He composes his sculptures from found materials, small objects, scrap wood, and plaster, and typically covers the assembled forms with white paint, unifying the various humble materials and giving them an ethereal presence. Intimate in scale, Twombly’s sculptures engage in an ongoing dialogue with his paintings, several of which are also on view in the newly reinstalled fourth-floor collection galleries.

Organized by Ann Temkin, The Marie-Josée and Henry Kravis Chief Curator of Painting and Sculpture.

The exhibition is made possible by BNP Paribas.
