D’Amelio Gallery is pleased to announce a twenty-five year traveling survey dedicated to the American sculptor Tony Feher. Organized by Claudia Schmuckli, Director and Chief Curator of the Blaffer Art Museum, University of Houston, the exhibition will open May 11 at Des Moines Art Center and be accompanied by a monograph that represent a comprehensive, in-depth consideration of the artist’s career to date. It seeks to reveal the richness, complexity, and impact of Feher’s investigations through a careful selection of 60 key works. The artist’s embrace of fragility, transience and emotion, along with his preference for non-precious, commonly available materials and found objects, has been highly influential with a younger generation of artists who have similarly decided to become archivists of their own lives and personal journeys. The sculptures presented give form to a spatial vocabulary refined over nearly three decades.
