"An Evening with Sterling Ruby" Program

The Museum of Modern Art

This event has ended.

Los Angeles-based artist Sterling Ruby (German, b. 1972) is known for totemic resin forms, intentionally defaced Minimalist sculptures, and membrane-like ceramics. He also works with video and photography, drawing inspiration from graffiti, science fiction, institutional architecture, and antiquity. Ruby’s work tackles aesthetic tropes and social stereotypes, using gestures that refer to notions of transience, transgression, and transference. The program includes the premiere of Ruby’s recent untitled video from 2009, along with other works including "Agoraphobic" (2001), "Found Cushion Act" (2005), "Transient Trilogy" (2005-09), and "Dihedral" (2006).
