Gagosian Gallery Rome
22 March – 29 May 2012
Gagosian Gallery Rome is pleased to announce The 5-7-9 Series (1992), a historic installation piece by U.S. artist Walter De Maria (b. 1935), best known for his pioneering work in the Minimal and Land Art movements with seminal projects such as The Lightning Field (1977) in New Mexico.
Presented in Gagosian Rome’s oval exhibition space, The 5-7-9 Series is composed of 27 sculptural elements of extraordinary visual impact that exemplify De Maria’s exploration of measurement and number as compositional principles.
