Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

Ruth Asawa's feather-light, wire sculptures combine a delicate beauty with a complex structural patterning, a bit like the sculptural equivalent of handmade lacework. The Californian-born artist also produced a substantial amount of works on paper which continued the same theme of gently meandering lines bending into repeating patterns. See both at David Zwirner at the start of 2020.
