Artist Talk with Kay Whitney

“colorless green ideas sleep furiously”, Kay Whitney (American, born 1949), 2017, Felt, grommets, steel, aircraft cable, 9 × 9 × 2 ft. (274.4 × 274.4 × 61 cm), Purchased with funds provided by Catherine Lee, 2019.21, © Kay Whitney. Uploaded by lindsy
Coinciding with the installation of her work "colorless green ideas sleep furiously (2017)," now part of SAMA’s permanent collection, Los Angeles-based sculptor Kay Whitney will speak about her practice as an artist and writer. As is evident in her use of non-traditional processes such as sewing and suspension, she has been influenced by both feminism and postmodernism. Through her use of industrial materials such as felt, steel, and aircraft cable, Whitney redefines the expectations of sculpture in large-scale abstract works that traverse the languages of art, sexuality, and mathematics.
