Check gallery website for hours and additional info
Altman Siegel is pleased to announce “USE YOUR WORDS,” Matt Keegan’s third solo exhibition with the gallery.
Continuing his deep interest in language and cognition, Keegan will present new works that interrogate primary and secondary forms of language and associative parameters of communication. Among the three central works are new Cutout sculptures, which, started in 2014, serve as surrogate units for words and concepts; abstracting the layers of language systems to its more playful and aesthetic permutations. These symmetrical wall-based forms are carefully translated from their original hand-cut paper templates to machined, bent and powder coated steel.
Opening reception Thursday, February 28, 6 – 8 pm
