Jaume Plensa: Human Landscape at Frist Center
Sculptures by internationally renowned Spanish artist Jaume Plensa will be on view concurrently at the Frist Center for the Visual Arts from June 5 to September 7, 2015, and at Cheekwood Botanical Garden & Museum of Art from May 22 to November 1, 2015. Seen together, the indoor and outdoor installations mark Plensa’s most comprehensive North American exhibition to date and exemplify the range of the artist’s work, which reflects timeless philosophical queries. Jointly organized by Cheekwood and the Frist Center, Jaume Plensa: Human Landscape is a cross-city celebration of the preeminent sculptor’s oeuvre. “We are so pleased to partner with Cheekwood in bringing this exhibition to Nashville. The work is going to be extraordinary within its garden setting,” says Frist Center Chief Curator Mark Scala. “Plensa has earned an international following among curators, critics and art lovers. He has also earned acclaim with the wider public, which has responded enthusiastically to work that is both beautiful and poetic, reflecting humanity’s physical existence, psychology, and spirituality in ways we can all feel connected to.” In addition to the three large-scale works shown indoors in the Frist Center’s Gordon Contemporary Artists Project Gallery, Plensa’s Isabella (2014), a monumental head, will be on view outside the Center’s Demonbreun Street entrance until October 2016, and will mirror a “sister” cast-iron sculpture sited at Cheekwood.
