tom sachs exhibits his furniture in the US for the first time in over 20 years

For the first time in more than twenty years, New York-based artist Tom Sachs displays the extension of his sculptural practice through ‘Tom Sachs: Furniture’ by Theaster Gates’s Rebuild Foundation and Anthony Gallery at Stony Islands Arts Bank, Chicago from July 7th to September 4th, 2022. Furniture pieces from Sachs’ repertoire grace the exhibition, a testament to the mixed-media artist’s recreations of modern iconographies through everyday materials such as plywood. Along with his artworks, the public-art show turns into a platform for Sach to demonstrate the range of his creative artistry, and his furniture signature is underlined through the variety of holes and use of lines and blocks with clean edges.

‘There is sculpture in everything, even in a chair’: Tom Sachs on his new Chicago exhibition

Furniture has long been part of artist Tom Sachs’ oeuvre. For over 30 years he’s been designing and building chairs, tables, cabinets and more, considering his furniture an extension of his sculpture practice. His ‘NASA’ chairs from his 2012 show sold out in five hours when he re-editioned them in 2017, and in the early days of his career, he was assisting Frank Gehry when Gehry designed his bent plywood chair for Knoll.
