Public Art Fund is proud to announce a solo exhibition by Iranian-born, Minneapolis-based Siah Armajani. This exhibition also coincides with Armajani’s career-spanning survey Siah Armajani: Follow This Line at The Met Breuer. Presenting an interactive sculpture, this exhibit is arguably a pivotal work in the artist’s six-decade career. The bridge rises to a peak to accommodate a lone tree planted beneath it, creating a structure more conceptually-driven than functional. It is also a strong reminiscence of its original installation more than 50 years ago.

There are also three other solo exhibitions at Public Art Fund, which are by internationally renowned Dutch-born Mark Manders; Cuban-born, New York-based Carmen Herrera, and the seminal Chicago-based Pope.L.
