INDUCTION: Tauba Auerbach and Éliane Radigue

Organized by Senior Curator Andria Hickey

February 16, 2018June 10, 2018

MOCA Cleveland presents the work of Tauba Auerbach (b. 1981, San Francisco) in a prototype for an exhibition format that explores the idea of artistic relationships and influential practices. In this format, an artist is invited to collaborate and/or show their work in dialogue with an artist who has impacted their work over time.

Auerbach's rich exploration of painting, sculpture, sound, and typography explores the possibilities of multi-dimensional space and phenomenological encounters. Her work is often inspired by systems of logic—mathematical, linguistic, and spatial. Most recently, her large-scale paintings and glass- and 3D-printed sculptures articulate the relationship between such natural forms as the wave, the vortex, and the helix with planes of sight and physical presence. For her project at MOCA, Auerbach will create a unique, architecturally responsive exhibition in dialogue with the work of an artist who has deeply inspired her practice.
