William Tucker – Masks at Buchmann Gallery

Berlin, 4 November – 21 January 2023

The Buchmann Galerie is pleased to announce the upcoming exhibition Masks by William Tucker in the Buchmann Box. This exhibition will focus on the work of British American sculptor and art theorist William Tucker. Tucker was born in 1935 and broke from his constructivist and minimalist practice in the mid-1980s to create modeled works in plaster that oscillate between figure and pure form.

Masks have been associated with ritual and cultural social practices since the beginning of human history, and Tucker’s sculptures contain this symbolism. His works, many of which are titled with the name of a person, are composed of cast bronze or plastic and have a form that oscillates between abstraction and the image of a mask.

In 1974, Tucker published The Language of Sculpture, a revolutionary book exploring modern sculpture from Degas to Brancusi. It met with great admiration from sculptors such as Tony Cragg and Richard Deacon. The Masks exhibition in the Buchmann Box promises to be a fascinating exploration of William Tucker’s most recent body of work. Don’t miss your chance to experience this thought-provoking exhibition.
