About The Event
We are pleased to support sculptor Marius Ritiu’s new project, entitled "Rock and Roll" ("Sisyphus" – part II), which has been completed during the summer of 2019 as part of a Socrates Sculpture Park residency program.
The work uses an original technique developed by the artist and features a towering oblong hammered-copper rock sitting in a Costco shopping cart that the artist imagines as a meteorite fallen from interstellar space.
Opening: October 5 (4-6 pm), no RSVP needed. Presented as part of The Socrates Annual 2019. More details here.
UPDATE: Artist Talk at the Romanian Culture Institute on October 23, 7 pm. Free entrance, no booking necessary.
