1040 Lounge - Celebrating and Promoting the Arts in the Bronx
Presented by the Bronx Museum Community Advisory Council.
On the occasion of his retrospective exhibition at the Bronx Museum, the sculptor Tony Feher will speak about his life and work. Join us for the talk and moderated Q & A led by Bronx Museum curator Lia Zaaloff.
Tony Feher came to prominence in the 1990s, inspired by the generation of minimalists that preceded him. Using materials in new ways, Feher turned his attention to the sculptural qualities of the everyday. Taking advantage of the generally overlooked and discarded, he highlights their formal qualities while simultaneously imbuing them with personal meaning. His careful consideration transforms and re-contextualizes these items into unique works of art.
Location: North Wing Lobby
