Mark di Suvero: Rumi and Huru

About the Exhibition

Rumi is a typical work by Mark di Suvero (b.1933, Shanghai, China). Made of I-beams and steel plates, it is large, metal and abstract. It stands 25 feet in height and is approximately 4 tons in weight. Created between 1990 and 1992, Rumi pays homage to a fifteenth-century Persian poet of the same name.

Huru, meaning “hello” and “goodbye” in an aboriginal Australian language, also is made of I-beams, but in a form reminiscent of a person with extend arms—a greeting for “hello” or “goodbye”.
