Herbert Ferber: Form into Space

A Herbert Ferber sculpture animates the air around it. In the 1940s, inspired by Surrealism, the artist began creating increasingly abstract works composed of energetic flourishes and intertwining forms, like lines of bold calligraphy. This exhibition showcases Ferber’s sculptures and related drawings from the mid-twentieth century, offering viewers a glimpse into this distinctive and innovative artist’s mind as he grappled with space and form.
