JAMES LEE BYARS
The Rest is Silence
27 April through 30 June 2006
UPPER EAST SIDE, NEW YORK
 

Mary Boone, Perry Rubenstein, and Michael Werner Galleries announce their collaborative survey of the career of James Lee Byars (1932–1997). This unique project filling six individual galleries will span more than forty years of artistic production, by one of the most influential artists of the second half of the twentieth century. It is the largest and most comprehensive presentation of Byars’s works in the United States, providing a rare opportunity to view a unique selection of late, monumental-scale installations, and early paper and cloth objects. The exhibition is curated by independent curator and scholar Klaus Ottmann, who organized the important Byars retrospective for the Schirn Kunsthalle in Frankfurt.
