A traveling retrospective of more than 60 sculptures and other works by Ukrainian-born sculptor Alexander Archipenko is featured at the Faulconer Gallery at Grinnell College.
“Archipenko: A Modern Legacy” includes works from major museum and private collections as well as never-before-exhibited examples from Archipenko’s archives. The exhibition spans the artist’s entire career, from Kiev to New York City, where Archipenko established a 40-year creative legacy before his death in 1964.

“Archipenko is inspired by Picasso and Cubism, so people may recognize and see references throughout this comprehensive survey of Archipenko’s work,” says Daniel Strong, associate director of Faulconer Gallery.

Faulconer Gallery will host a series of events related to the exhibit. For details and related talks, click here. The exhibit runs through Dec. 11.
