RubberMade: Sculpture by Chakaia Booker


June 6–August 17, 2008

 

see current exhibition gallery see upcoming exhibitions    

Since the early 1990s, Chakaia Booker has worked almost exclusively with rubber tires. Through a physically demanding process of twisting, slicing, and weaving found rubber tires (primarily from bikes, cars, and farm equipment), she forms dynamic, whimsical sculptures that fuse ecological concerns with questions about racial and economic differences, globalization, and sociopolitical power structures. Featuring twenty-four sculptures, this exhibition surveys the past eight years of production by one of today’s most prominent American artists.
