Lee Ufan: Open Dimension

Lee Ufan: Open Dimensions

This exhibition could not be any boulder. For the first time in the Hirshhorn’s history, its outdoor Plaza will be transformed by a singular artist.

Lee Ufan: Open Dimensions an ambitious site-specific commission by the celebrated Korean artist Lee Ufan. The expansive installation, featuring 10 new sculptures from the artist’s signature and continuing Relatumseries, marks Lee Ufan’s largest single outdoor sculpture projectin the US, the first exhibition of his work in the nation’s capital, and the first time in the Hirshhorn’s 45-year history that its 4.3-acre outdoor plaza has been devoted, almost in its entirety, to the work of a single artist. Each of Lee’s sculptures responds to the Museum’s unique architecture and continues his practice of placing contrasting materials, such as stainless-steelplates and boulders, in dialogue with each other to heighten awareness of the world, in his words, “exactly as it is.”
