“Burning Contract, Splash Building, Swarm, Spiral Metamorphosis” is set to open at Janos Gat Gallery in NYC. The exhibition contains some of Dennis Oppenheim’s proposals for large-scale public projects.

The prints display specific angles of three dimensional computer renderings for the proposed works. The sculptures rely on an abstract path to resolution with a simplicity that deserves respect. It would have been easy to overwork these ideas beyond common recognition but Oppenheim knows and has always known when to stop.

Some of the proposals have recently been secured by the United States, Canada, China, and Europe so in future you will see these structures realized. The strength of this exhibition should result in the construction of even more of these powerful artworks. It is a bright future that spreads Oppenheim to every corner of the globe.
