David Smith "Cubes and Anarchy" at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Los Angeles , California


Resnick Pavilion
April 3, 2011–July 24, 2011

This is the first major thematic exhibition devoted to the work of David Smith (1906-65). Throughout his career, what Smith called "basic geometric form" was a powerful touchstone.Cubes and Anarchy offers a fresh interpretation of Smith, revealing geometric abstraction as a leitmotif deeply connected to the artist's self-definition as a workingman and his need to reconcile that, through his interest in constructivism, with his identity as a modern artist.
