“I think the shape of the fish is architectural, that’s my point of view. I like the expression of movement. I was wondering if we could somehow recreate that, going into a building, ”said Frank Gehry in a new video released by the Gagosian Gallery in collaboration with his Spinning tales exhibition visible until today.
The exhibition traces the lineage of Gehry’s famous fish sculptures from their beginnings as an unintended by-product of his experiments in a plastic laminate called ColorCore until their heyday as an installation at the Summer Olympics. of 1992 in Barcelona, and finally at their terminus of the eighth exhibition of the gallery of fluid sculptures in copper and polyvinyl which opened its doors on June 24.
The gallery went all out for the exhibition, which included a performance by Grammy-winning artist Esperanza Spalding, as well as an appearance by conductor Gustavo Dudamel, who is working with Gehry on a project at to come.
“In America, we’re supposed to have an arts education in public schools, and that doesn’t exist,” the 92-year-old architect told the Los Angeles Youth Orchestra (YOLA), overseen by Dudamel, who agreed with Gehry’s notion that classical music contains an architectural ideal for any type of study environment.
Gehry is set to open his new Thomas L. Beckmen YOLA center in the Inglewood neighborhood of Los Angeles this fall.
