Oldenburg and van Bruggen on the Roof

April 30–November 2, 2002

This exhibition includes three very large, intensely colored works, on which the sculptors Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen have collaborated in recent years: Architect's Handkerchief, 1999, fiber-reinforced plastic painted with polyester gelcoat, twelve and one-half feet high; Corridor Pin, Blue, 1999, stainless steel and aluminum painted with polyurethane enamel, more than twenty-one feet high; and Plantoir (the French word means dibble or trowel), 2001, stainless steel, aluminum, and fiber-reinforced plastic, painted with polyurethane enamel, nearly twenty-four feet high. In addition, in the south corners of the Roof Garden, there is a two-part sculpture, Shuttlecock/Blueberry Pies I and II, 1999, cast aluminum painted with acrylic urethane, each four feet high. None of the sculptures has been exhibited previously in New York.
