In doing so, he created a new sculptural vocabulary that defied categorization and became the cornerstone of his practice. This contemporary art exhibition – Wendell Castle: A New Vocabulary brings together rare, early, formative pieces with key works from the last decade of Castle’s long career, during which time he realized a body of work of critical importance and boundless ambition.
