Wade Kavanaugh and Stephen B. Nguyen | Giant paper installation

Brooklyn based Wade Kavanaugh and Stephen B. Nguyen have created a massive paper sculpture for The Art Center of Sun Valley in Ketchum, Idaho. This site-specific installation titled In Response to Shoshone Falls spans over 6 meters in each direction.


The two artists, who have been working with each other since 2005, are best known for their large-scale sculptures that fill entire rooms with twisted paper materials. Their paper environments often resemble forests and trees, surrounding the viewer and adapting to the construction of their space by climbing up walls and suspending from ceilings.

The installations’ size forces visitors to interact with the installations. The installations are made from natural materials such as wood and paper, giving their work an organic atmosphere.

Sweet Land of Funk

Art | December 28, 2020

Sweet Land of Funk, currently on view on the third floor of the Museum's Katz Wing for Modern Art, explores the art movements of 1950s San Francisco. A survey of more than 20 works from the Museum's modern and contemporary art collections by Funk and figurative Bay Area artists, including Viola Frey, Jay DeFeo, Bruce Nauman, Richard Diebenkorn, and Manuel Neri, the special installation creates a sense of the City by the Bay, Oakland, Berkeley, and beyond during the storied period of Beat poets and bohemians, of Haight and "Howl," and of counter-culture that questioned conformity, ongoing military conflicts, the disparity of wealth, and other social issues that would fuel the revolution of the Baby Boomer generation.
