The Pulitzer Arts Foundation presents two exhibitions this fall: Ruth Asawa: Life's Work and Lola Álvarez Bravo: Picturing Mexico.

Ruth Asawa: Life's Work
The first major museum exhibition of the work of Ruth Asawa (1926–2013) since 2006, Ruth Asawa: Life's Work is also the first ever outside the West Coast, where the artist lived and worked for six decades. This landmark career-spanning show brings together some eighty works, comprising nearly sixty sculptures from the full trajectory of her career—including looped-wire, tied-wire, electroplated, and cast works—as well as twenty drawings and collages, some of which date back to her years at Black Mountain College, where she studied with Josef Albers, who inspired her interest in materials as generators of form. Together, the works in the exhibition will provide new insight into Asawa’s innovative contributions to the field of modern and contemporary sculpture, shedding light on her highly distinctive vision, which she achieved with a stunning deftness of hand and economy of means.

Ruth Asawa: Life’s Work will be accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue, including essays by Aruna D’Souza, Helen Molesworth, and Tamara H. Schenkenberg. Published by Yale University Press, the catalogue will be available in Spring 2019; to pre-order, sign up at pulitzerarts.org.

Lola Álvarez Bravo: Picturing Mexico
This exhibition presents nearly 50 photographs by Lola Álvarez Bravo (1903–93), who played a critical role in Mexico’s modernist wave through her work as a photographer, educator, and curator. Picturing Mexico focuses on Álvarez Bravo’s personal artistic practice from the 1930s to the 1970s, when she traveled across the country producing iconic portraits of her fellow artists, lesser-known compositions that emphasize abstract form, pattern, and the play of light and shadow, and images of life in post-revolutionary Mexico. Her pictures of people at work and at leisure, of buildings new and old, and of a diverse array of landscapes bring to life an era of profound transformation, viewed from the perspective of one of Mexico’s pioneering female photographers.

Lola Álvarez Bravo: Picturing Mexico is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue that includes essays by Stephanie Weissberg and Karen Cordero Reiman. The catalogue is co-published by Yale University Press and available for purchase at the front desk and online at pulitzerarts.org/publications.
