MILWAUKEE, WI.- The Warehouse has opened a new exhibition, Carve, Cast, and Coil: International Sculpture from the Permanent Collection, which is on view through Aug. 30.

Featuring works by 20 artists from 12 countries on 5 continents, the exhibit’s sculptures are from The Warehouse’s permanent collection. Artists include Ruth Duckworth, Truman Lowe, David Nash, Mimmo Paladino and Alejandro Santiago. The work of two of the artists – Bruno Cidra and Pamela Mei Yee Leung– has never been exhibited in the U.S.

With a focus on material, traditional sculptural mediums, such as bronze, wood, and stone, are juxtaposed with barbed wire and houseplants. Materials found in craft, such as bamboo and ceramic, are sculpted to form complex and elegant shapes. Works are carved, cast, and coiled – and burned and welded and woven and more – to create unique forms that push the limits of the materials from which they are made. Several sculptures are accompanied by drawings or paintings by the same artist, showing thematic and stylistic similarities throughout the artist’s body of work. By viewing an artist’s sculptural output with their other work, connecting concepts emerge across their varied mediums.

The Warehouse will be open for Gallery Night from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. July 19 and Gallery Day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. July 20. Additional lectures are planned in conjunction with works on display and will be announced on The Warehouse’s website and social channels.

The Warehouse also has announced open summer hours. The Warehouse will be open to visitors 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays through Aug. 30 and by appointment. Admission is free.
