Opening: Matthew Szösz | Minimal Tension

For Matthew Szösz, setting up just one glass art experiment is an involved process. The preparation takes half a workday in some cases, and up to four weeks in others. It all leads to that pivotal moment, when the sculpture either takes its final shape or shatters into a million pieces. The Seattle-based artist has repeated this process countless times—with about 75% of his work instantly collapsing into rubble. This spirit of fearless experimentation is reflected in his dazzlingly innovative, award-winning oeuvre.

Szösz debuts new works from two of his ongoing series, Inflatables and Ropework, in his solo exhibition Minimal Tension. The show opens at form & concept on Friday, April 27 from 5 to 7 pm, coinciding with the opening reception for Debra Baxter: Tooth & Nail. Szösz conducts an artist talkon Saturday, April 28 from 2 to 3 pm, and the show runs through May 19, 2018.
