Lynden continues its series of exhibitions exploring small-scale works by artists in the permanent collection. Robert Murray (b. 1936, Canada) is represented on Lynden’s grounds by Windfall, a painted metal sculpture made in 1966. In this exhibition, curator Jonathan D. Lippincott brings together some of the artist’s working models as well as a series of works on paper.

Join artist Robert Murray and curator Jonathan D. Lippincott for a conversation about the artist’s work. They will discuss the sculptor’s process of working with fabricators and foundries, issues of public art and the siting of sculpture, Murray’s early years, his close friendship with Barnett Newman and relationships with other artists, his lifelong interest in flying, and the current resurgence of interest in abstract modern sculpture.

The conversation will be followed by a reception and book signing. Copies of Lippincott’s monograph, Robert Murray: Sculpture, and his earlier book, Large Scale: Fabricating Sculpture in the 1960s and 1970s, will be available for purchase.
