It's the first major museum exhibition to focus on the artist's investigation of sculptural form and meaning. The show's T-shirts, bedsheets and tablecloths are cast in bronze or gessoed stiffly into sculpture reminiscent of daily chores; according to Havel, the resulting works grant artistic integrity and dignity to all objects. The physical space required and the movement of the work -- think of a white sheet hung out to dry only to be captured mid-breeze -- are particularly important with sculptures of this scale. And speaking of scale: One of the curtain-lined upper galleries of the Caroline Wiess Law Building inspired Havel to do a site-specific installation, Fallen Reich. The work is meant to disrupt the gallery's openness. Feng shui? Maybe not, but it's definitely worth a look.
