Carnegie Museum of Art / Paul Thek Retrospective Exhibit


Location: Pittsburgh, PA

EDGE worked with Carnegie Museum of Art Director Lynn Zelevansky to shape the space for this landmark retrospective of Paul Thek’s work. The space supports the chronological arrangement of the artwork, creating thresholds emphasized by a compression of space and a dimming of light between the widely varied phases of the artist’s work. The show culminates in the compelling space that evokes one of Thek’s last shows, known as the ‘Swimming Pool’, for which Thek hung his paintings very low to the floor.
