For our third changing exhibition, the Barry Art Museum is proud to present Karen LaMonte: The Performative Object, September 9, 2021, through January 2, 2022. LaMonte is an acclaimed American sculptor living and working in Prague. By freezing a single gesture of a body both clothed and in motion, LaMonte is able to investigate themes of memory, beauty, and loss. A master craftsperson, LaMonte has pioneered complex casting methods across diverse media. At the Barry, we will set the stage with a selection of her astonishing works in cast glass, iron, and bronze.
