Park McArthur creates sculptures and installations that highlight form and material, often as they relate to lived experience. Her recent exhibition Ramps calls to mind diverse references in the history of contemporary art and sculpture, while emphasizing the use and efficacy of ramps as an access tool for entering and exiting buildings by wheelchair. Her work is often grounded in the social relations that conduct daily life. McArthur lives and works in New York.
Presented in partnership with Food For Thought.
