Do Ho Suh News
Through July 4 2016, Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego (MCASD) will present an extensive solo exhibition of artwork by Do Ho Suh, ranging from large-scale architectural installations and sculptures, to works on paper and video. The MCASD exhibition webpage elaborates, saying “This exhibition will transform MCASD Downtown’s Jacobs Building into a maze-like installation that replicates the artist’s apartment spaces from a single building in New York City. Created in luminous swaths of translucent fabric, the ghostly rooms and hallways are mysteriously supported by a subtle stainless steel armature.”
