Tom Sachs Tom Sachs on his work
Stiller Auditorium 6:00pm
Tom Sachs is a New York-based artist whose genre defying work recreates modern icons using everyday materials, showing all the work that goes into producing an object-a reversal of modernization’s trend towards products with cleaner, simpler, and more perfect edges. The scars and imperfections in his sculptures and paintings tell the story of how they came into being, removing them from the realm of miraculous conception. Sachs will speak to his process and the rituals that allow him to create the several works in his oeuvre on view at the Norton, spanning paintings, boomboxes, and a towering outdoor sculpture.
