Liam Gillick’s Stacked Revision Structure, 2005
Location: Albright-Knox Art Gallery Grounds
Referring both to the tradition of mid-century painted metal sculpture and contemporary industrial architecture, Stacked Revision Structure is a twelve-foot cube fabricated from powder-coated aluminum that was produced specifically for the Albright-Knox Art Gallery.
Liam Gillick, a minimalist sculptor, strives to create a conversation with the architecture that surrounds his artworks. This sculpture is positioned in such a way that you can view either the classical architecture of the 1905 Building or the modern architecture of the 1962 Building as a backdrop. The Albright-Knox owns several of Gillick’s works, all of which echo Stacked Revision Structure with their industrial forms and colorful patterns.
