Beauties is a newly commissioned exhibition by noted contemporary American sculptor, printer, and conceptual and visual artist Willie Cole. He is known for using irons and ironing as central motifs in his work for 30 years, evoking everything from African masks to slave ship diagrams to the routines of domestic servitude. In this special installation, the gallery will be lined with haunting, full-scale prints made from crushed and hammered ironing boards, allowing visitors to confront the contradictory energies running through them.
