Walter De Maria Presents "Idea To Action To Object" @ Gagosian In London

Idea to Action to Object is an exhibition of over forty works on paper and several related sculptures by the late Walter De Maria. The drawings, sourced from the Estate of Walter De Maria, are on view for the first time, revealing various unrealized projects and philosophical explorations, and suggesting a tender humanity behind De Maria’s geometric precision. In De Maria’s wide-ranging oeuvre, objects emerge from a transitional zone between idea and action. Like sounds coming from an instrument, shapes appear, overlap, and repeat in infinite permutations—drawing attention to the limits of gallery spaces, prioritizing bodily awareness, and examining the relationship between the relative and the absolute. Idea to Action to Object is on view through March 9 at Gagosian 20 Grosvenor Hill, London. photographs courtesy of Gagosian
