This dazzling exhibition features commissions by three dozen acclaimed international artists including Richard Tuttle, Cynthia Schira, Helena Hernmarck, James Bassler, Gyöngy Laky, Gerhardt Knodel, Sherri Smith, N. Dash, Lewis Knauss, Ana Lisa Hedstrom, Kiyomi Iwata, Nancy Koenigsberg, and John Garrett.

This exhibition was organized by the Cotsen Foundation for Academic Research with the Racine Art Museum and runs September 11, 2016 - January 15, 2017 at the Fowler Museum at UCLA
