DALLAS, TX.- This fall, the Nasher Sculpture Center presents Tony Cragg: Seeing Things, the first U.S. museum exhibition in nearly 20 years of the work of the award-winning, internationally-acclaimed artist. The exhibition will be on view at the Nasher Sculpture Center from September 10, 2011 to January 8, 2012.

Featuring approximately 30 large- and moderately-scaled sculptures dating from 1993 to the present, the exhibition provides a rare opportunity to see and better understand the artist's work since his last U.S. museum exhibition in the United States in 1990-92.

“Tony Cragg is one of the leading sculptors of our time,” said Nasher Sculpture Center director, Jeremy Strick. “Through his work in a variety of media and surprising range of forms, he has consistently broadened and deepened our understanding of sculpture and its possibilities.”

Cragg is lauded for his innovative and varied forms, which draw upon the artist's broad intellectual interests in science and literature, as well as an intuitive and emotional response to form and material. The exhibition at the Nasher Sculpture Center will survey the artist’s great scope and variety of the artist’s work. In addition, the exhibition will include a selection of drawings, integral to the artist's method and rarely seen in this country.

Arrayed throughout the Nasher Sculpture Center, the exhibition will occupy much of the interior galleries and garden, as well as engage the public on the sidewalk in front of the Nasher. The exhibition will be accompanied by a lavishly illustrated catalogue featuring a new scholarly essay by Nasher curator Jed Morse.
