To support Ruth Asawa: Citizen of the Universe, an exhibition co-organized by Modern Art Oxford and the Stavanger Art Museum (Norway), that presents a comprehensive overview of Ruth Asawa  as an artist, a pedagogue, and arts activist. The exhibition brings together not only key examples of Asawa’s wire sculptures from the first half of her career, but also contextualizes them through the artist’s drawings and her involvement with community-based art education initiatives at Black Mountain College and the Alvarado Arts Workshop. The exhibition travels to both co-organizing venues and is accompanied by an English-language catalogue.
