In collaboration with the Franz West Privatstiftung, Gagosian showcases Möbelskulpturen/Furniture Works by Franz West in its New York gallery this autumn. During his lifetime, West reimagined the viewing of art as an interactive rather than passive experience. The sensuous and highly distinctive art that he produced over the course of forty years transformed galleries and public spaces into engaging aesthetic environments. Rejecting the notion that sculpture should be seen but not touched, he created the first Passstücke/Adaptives, “ergonomically inclined” objects made from plaster, wire, and other materials.
