Marking Infinity
24 June – 28 September, 2011

The Guggenheim presents the first U.S. retrospective of the artist, philosopher, and poet Lee Ufan, charting the artist’s creation of a visual, conceptual, and theoretical language that has expanded the possibilities for sculpture and painting. For Lee, each artwork mediates a dynamic encounter between the viewer, object, and site that opens up “a realm of infinity where one can continuously bring one’s self back to nothingness.”
