Tom Sachs is a New York–based sculptor known for his work inspired by icons of modernism and design. Using modest studio materials, Sachs creates parallel universes incorporating semi-functional sculpture, sometimes deployed by the artist and his studio assistants for interactive projects, as in Nutsy’s (2001-3) and Space Program (2012). His work is in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; the J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles; and the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, among many others. He has had solo exhibitions at the Noguchi Museum, Queens, New York (2016), the Brooklyn Museum (2016), the Contemporary Austin (2015), the Park Avenue Armory, New York (2012), Fondazione Prada, Milan (2006), and the Deutsche Guggenheim, Berlin (2003), among others. His film A Space Program was released by Zeitgeist in 2016, offering viewers a glimpse into the artist’s studio practice, philosophy, and the narrative surrounding his 2012 project with Creative Time at the Park Avenue Armory.
