Currently, The Pace Gallery in New York has two exhibitions with works by Tara Donovan: Drawings (Pins) at their space at 25th Street, and Untitled (Mylar), 2011 at 22nd Street.
Tara Donovan’s Untitled (Mylar), 2011 is a large-scale installation for which she uses sheets of Mylar. The Mylar sheets with their metallic surfaces are bent into blooming balls and arranged into organic structures of varying heights. The installation relates to Untitled (Mylar) 2010, a work that was part of her 2010 exhibition at the Indianapolis Museum of Art.
Tara Donovan is known for her landscape-like installations made from common everyday materials such as pencils, cut electrical cable, and plastic cups.
