Since the early 2000s, Sterling Ruby has moved nimbly between mediums and disciplines, connecting art, craft, popular culture, history, philosophy and other fields to produce a rich compendium of objects and images. Deeply invested in the materials he uses, Ruby incorporates their histories and tactile qualities into each of his series, as well as his autobiography and world view.
Coinciding with Gallery Weekend Berlin, Monika Sprüth and Philomene Magers are pleased to present an exhibition of new work by Ruby, installed throughout the Berlin gallery, which interrelate along themes of verticality, duality, craft, domesticity and shifts in scale, connecting recurrent facets across the artist’s work.
To accompany his solo show and to address the current humanitarian crisis in Ukraine, Sterling Ruby has designed an open edition to display in Sprüth Magers Window.
100% of the sales proceeds from the edition will be donated to Be an Angel e.V., an organization working to evacuate refugees from Ukraine.
