press release

For the first time in the Hirshhorn's 45-year history, the Museum has invited an artist to approach its 4.3-acre Plaza as a unified space. Lee Ufan: Open Dimension (Sept. 27, 2019-Sept. 13, 2020) is an outdoor exhibition of ten site-responsive sculptures. Using natural and man-made materials like boulders and stainless steel, the artist has composed each piece in conversation with the Hirshhorn's unique architecture, expanding his Relatum series. This commission is complimented by an installation of four of Lee’s abstract Dialogue paintings in the third-floor galleries. This is the largest-ever presentation of Lee Ufan’s work in America.
