Bringing together more than a dozen recent, large-scale sculptures, "Skirts" marks Arlene Shechet's first solo show at Pace.
Based between New York City and the Hudson Valley, Shechet is known for her towering, architectural assemblages that combine abstract, often geometric components—which, as individual elements, are most frequently crafted out of painted wood and glazed ceramic. The body of work on view in "Skirts," however, also makes use of materials such as concrete, steel, and bronze, among other sturdy substances.
