ARTFIXdaily is closed April 14 to 19 during a redesign of some features. Subscribers can look for the next e-newsletter on April 22.

A buzzworthy exhibition on view now:

Ursula von Rydingsvard: The Contour of Feeling
National Museum of the Women in the Arts, Washington, DC, through July 28, 2019
Monumental wood sculptures by Ursula von Rydingsvard (b. 1942, Deensen, Germany) evoke the grandeur and power of nature. They simultaneously bear evidence of the artist’s meticulous process of cutting, shaping and assembling her works from thousands of cedar blocks. The Contour of Feeling focuses on von Rydingsvard’s work since 2000 and her continued commitment to experimentation. The presentation includes many sculptures not previously exhibited in the United States. Made from wood or other organic materials, including leather, silk and hair, these works present a window into the distinctive synthesis of emotional fragility and imposing scale that defines von Rydingsvard’s art. The exhibition is organized by the Fabric Workshop and Museum, Philadelphia and guest curator Mark Rosenthal.
