Tauba Auerbach: The New Ambidextrous Universe
Lower Gallery

The ICA presents the first solo exhibition in the UK by San Francisco-born, New York-based artist Tauba Auerbach. The exhibition features newly created sculptures and photographic works which take as their starting point the scientific principles of symmetry and reflection as a means to hint at an alternate, mirror universe.

Supported by Paula Cooper Gallery, Standard (Oslo) and the Tauba Auerbach Exhibitions Supporters Group, including Maya & Ramzy Rasamny, among others.

Also on view:

David Robilliard: The Yes No Quality of Dreams
