Hayoon Jay Lee at Zimmerli Art Museum'Surface Tension: Paintings and Sculpture from the Collection'
18 January - 25 June 2023
Hayoon Jay Lee's piece Forgotten Vessel (2020) will be included in the group exhibition Surface Tension at the Zimmerli Art Museum. Drawn from the Zimmerli’s collection, this exhibition brings together a cross-section of paintings, assemblage, sculpture and one print on rubber to explore the many ways that artists have focused on surface as a space for experimentation. Increasingly, the surface has become a field of texture and a space for embedded and attached objects; as artists have embraced found and natural materials, painting has become sculptural in form and sculpture has embraced surface effects. Ranging from Hayoon Jay Lee’s intimately scaled constructions of milled rice to Irina Nakhova’s enormous painting of a floating scaffold provides a wide-ranging look at works that draw from the American, European, and Dodge Collections.
