sonnabend gallery and 168 tenth avenue, new york november 1 – december 13, 2008

sonnabend gallery and kenny schachter of rove are currently presenting new large scale sculptural installations by zaha hadid in two new york city gallery spaces. the works on show reflect hadid’s vision of a new urbanism which blends art, architecture and design. some of the installations are based on architectural commission from hadid’s practice, like ‘masterplan’, which was originally part of hadid’s citywide plan for the asian side of istanbul. one of the other works is ‘kloris’, a cluster of sculptural seating elements inspired by the shapes of flower petals. the show builds on the excitement accompanying hadid designed ‘chanel contemporary art container’ currently on show in central park.
