A Symposium on Walter De Maria: Truth / Beauty

To mark the last day of the exhibition of Walter De Maria’s sculpture at Gagosian Le Bourget, this symposium will for the first time bring together collaborators of the artist, specialists, and acclaimed thinkers to explore the evolution of his practice, discuss how De Maria’s sculpture establishes a

personal relationship with viewers, and question what this work may mean to today’s culture and life. Completed after De Maria’s death by the Estate in accordance with his vision, Truth / Beauty (1993-2016) expands upon several longtime interests of the artist. These include precise geometries and their mathematical sequence as a means of relating one object to another, as well as an investigation of horizontal form. Truth / Beauty was begun in the early 1990s, at the same time as several other multipart sculptures, such as The 2000 Sculpture (1992) and The 5-7-9 Series (1992/96), but its horizontal format may be traced back to such early works as The Broken Kilometer (1979).

Symposium participants include:
--Elizabeth Childress, Director of the Walter De Maria Collection and Archives; Director of the Walter De Maria studio for 30 years.
--Emanuele Coccia, Associate Professor at the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales, Paris.
--Louisa Hutton and Matthias Sauerbruch, architects and founding partners of Sauerbruch Hutton; architects for the Turkentor building in Munich, which houses Walter De Maria’s Large Red Sphere (2011).
--Jane McFadden, Chair, Humanities & Sciences and Associate Professor at Art Center College of Design, Pasadena; author of Walter De Maria: Meaningless Work (Reaktion books, 2016).
--Lars Nittve, Advisor to M+ and WKCDA, Hong Kong; curator of “Walter De Maria” at the Moderna Museet, Stockholm (1989).
--Anaël Pigeat, Editor in Chief at Art Press.
--Corinna Thierolf, Chief Curator at the Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich. Curator for the installation of Large Red Sphere (2011) at the Turkentor building in Munich.

The conference is organized by Donatien Grau and Kara Vander Weg. Donatien Grau is a scholar and a Guest Curator at the Getty Museum, Los Angeles. He is currently working on a book of Chris Burden’s unrealized projects. Kara Vander Weg is Director at the Gagosian Gallery in New York, where she manages Walter De Maria’s estate.
