Compositions

Text by Suzanne Hudson
Design by Tomo Makiura & Mine Suda

With a lenticular cover that echoes the subtle, shifting, and atmospheric nature of the American sculptor’s work, this publication presents color reproductions and installation views of over 40 pieces from Tara Donovan’s Compositions (Cards) series, the subject of a traveling exhibition at three Pace locations.

Donovan’s practice of rigorous process- and game-based experimentation is explored in an essay by art historian and critic Suzanne Hudson.

Donovan’s work evidences an old-fashioned way of making, one that admits its status as handmade at every juncture, despite the copious amounts of sourced, industrially fabricated things that she takes as her raw ingredients.

Donovan has used vernacular, mass-produced objects as her mainstays, arranging them in geometric, modular systems that recall minimal structures, replicating cellular organisms, vast, disorienting topographies, and much more.
