Visit MCD on June 25-26, for the opening of “Iris Eichenberg: Where Words Fail” and “Robyn Horn: Material Illusions.”
Guest curated by Davira S. Taragin, “Iris Eichenberg: Where Words Fail” is the first mid-career survey of German artist Iris Eichenberg whose work addresses issues such as identity, gender, and “Heimat”-a German word denoting the inner peace found upon reaching a safe haven. Assembled for the first time for West Coast audiences, this exhibition presents forty works that demonstrate Eichenberg’s examination of self, and the impact of place and community.
“Robyn Horn: Material Illusions” is the West Coast debut of American artist Robyn Horn’s newest large-scale sculptures and paintings that explore Horn’s interest in time, and more specifically how the passage of time relates to material, decay, and entropy. Horn’s work mirrors aspects of natural environments, making sculptures with heavily textured surfaces that contain qualities of asymmetry, geometry, volume, lack of balance, and contrast.?
Visitors are to show proof of up-to-date vaccinations. All visitors over two years old must wear a specialized filtering mask such as KN95 or N95 at all times while inside the museum store, galleries, and restrooms.
