Leo Saul Berk | Structure and Ornament
Edited by Jo-Anne Birnie Danzker
This catalogue is published by the Frye Art Museum on the occasion of its exhibition Leo Saul Berk: Structure and Ornament and the exhibition The Uncertainty of Enclosure: Leo Saul Berk at INOVA (Institute of Visual Arts) at the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee. The catalogue features essays on Berk’s work by Frye Director Jo-Anne Birnie Danzker and INOVA Director Sara Krajewski; essays on the Ford House and the architect Bruce Goff by Sidney K. Robinson and John H. Waters; and a conversation between Leo Saul Berk and Scott Lawrimore. The catalogue also contains lavish reproductions of the installations and sculptural and filmic works in the exhibitions, including two new site-specific installations commissioned by the Frye. Through these works, Berk says, he hopes “to illuminate the transformative potential of exceptional architecture to positively shape our lives and creative imagination.”
