LogjamTom Sachs: Logjam

Tom Sachs is known for his effusive installations and constructions of a variety of objects more commonly found within the public or commercial domain. The exhibition, “Tom Sachs: Logjam,” located in the Foster Wing, will feature twelve installations consisting of the artist’s “work stations” and one video showing a day’s activities in the artist’s studio. Sachs’ work stations not only enable him to create art, but are also works of art in their own right. In the truest sense of form following function, Sachs’ fascinating and often obsessive work stations allow the viewer to peer into the rarely seen spaces in which this artist works. The exhibition, the artist’s first major solo museum show in the U.S., is curated by Jeff Fleming, Director of The Des Moines Art Center.
