Tara Donovan & Pace Prints Featured in "Women in the World"

In Jacoba Urist's piece titled "Why can’t great artists be mothers?" for Women of the World, a publication associated with The New York Times, she discusses the merits of being both a mother and artist, as well as concurrent Tara Donovan exhibitions at Pace Prints and Pace Gallery:

On a recent Friday evening in Manhattan, twin 5-year-old boys handed out Slinkys at a blue-chip opening. Their mother, acclaimed artist Tara Donovan, the recipient of a 2008 “MacArthur genius award,” creates large, dramatic installations from everyday objects—vast moonscapes out of Styrofoam cups and plastic straws. For her new show at Pace Prints (in conjunction with one at Pace Gallery), Donovan unveiled a series of prints, as well as a spiral wall assemblage, based on her “ongoing investigation of Slinkys as sculptural material.” What mother hasn’t, at some point, helped a child catapult a Slinky down the stairs? But in the hands of a master, an old toy becomes high art.
