Michael Zansky: Giants & Dwarfs


March 3 – August 31, 2013

Housed in the Gallery 888, Mana Contemporary’s 5,000-square-foot exhibition space, is Michael Zansky’s mega-installation, Giants & Dwarfs


Comprised of more than 200 4-foot-by-8-foot plywood panels, the piece was constructed over 12 years. The panels are stacked one atop another, reaching between 16 and 24 feet high, and span the four walls of Gallery 888. Zansky constructed Giants & Dwarfs through an artistic blend of wax, plywood, oil paint, glass, lenses, and other materials to create an immense landscape of imagery that completely envelops the viewer standing inside the space.
