Inflatable: Expanding Works of Art

05/26/2018-09/03/2018
10:00 上午 - 5:00 下午
Exploratorium
San Francisco 

Step inside and wonder at gigantic, fantastical air-filled artworks at Inflatable. Spread across our indoor and outdoor galleries, these ephemeral sculptures include otherworldly organisms by Jason Hackenwerth and Shih Chieh Huang, a “forest” of cushiony columns by Jimmy Kuehnle, an inflatable “insect-eye” room from Pneuhaus, and Amanda Parer’s monumental humanoid figures peeking around corners. Fueled by the whimsy and lightness of balloons, the artists of Inflatable have infused their creations with a technology, scale, and creative complexity that expands our vision of what contemporary art can look like.
