Monika Sosnowska. Maquette for The Hole. 2006

Projects 83 introduces the work of Monika Sosnowska (b. 1972), an artist living in Warsaw, Poland. Sosnowska creates architecturally structured installations that dramatically transform a viewer’s perception and experience of a space. She makes her works in response to a given setting, and this installation has been conceived specifically for The Museum of Modern Art. The artist develops these projects via a process based on paper maquettes that are beautiful works of art in themselves. Although Sosnowska has exhibited extensively in Europe during the past five years, this is her first solo exhibition at a gallery or museum in the United States. This project is presented in the Contemporary Galleries, adjacent to the exhibition Out of Time: A Contemporary View.

Organized by Ann Temkin, Curator, Department of Painting and Sculpture.
